Down in Charleston, SC now, as radar indicating outer band from Ophelia approaching the coastline. Yesterday evening, spent some time down on the Isle of Palms (barrier island beach) observing beautiful storm clouds over the ocean at sunset, complete with rainbow. We don't expect much of a surge here, perhaps only 1 to 2 feet over astronomical tide. Only a couple of schools in the area closed for today, with one voluntary shelter site opened. Wind gusts are expected to be up to 45 mph, perhaps a bit higher right along the coast. With next outer band now approaching, I will be heading down to the beach shortly to capture some video.
