As Hurricane Idalia approaches Hilton Head Island, we want to provide you with the latest updates on the situation. Watch this video for a live look from a local beach as of 10 AM Wednesday morning.
The hurricane is expected to reach the Lowcountry around 8 PM this evening, with projections indicating it as a Category 1 storm. The timing is raising concerns as high tide is expected to coincide with the storm’s arrival, heightening the risk of flooding and storm surges. This presents a particular threat to flood-prone areas along the coast.
In preparation for the storm, numerous businesses and medical facilities have taken the responsible step of closing their doors. At present, Publix has closed, while Target will remain open until noon.
For those seeking shelter from the impending storm, a storm shelter has been set up in Jasper County at 250 Jaguar Trail in Ridgeland.
Travel has also been significantly impacted by Hurricane Idalia. All flights departing from the Hilton Head airport have been canceled for today. Furthermore, all flights departing from the Hilton Head/Savannah Airport after noon today have also been canceled.
Here is a list of Hilton Head closures from the town of Hilton Head.
