The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Management Division is monitoring Tropical Depression Four, which was 110 mph east-southeast of Charleston as of late morning.

Though Beaufort County is not under a tropical storm warning, we are forecasted to receive 1 1/2 to 2 inches of rain and could experience flooding in low-lying areas this afternoon and into this evening. Wind gusts of up to 30 mph are also possible.

The Sheriff’s Office urges residents and guests to take caution when driving and to avoid swimming and boating as there is an increased chance of rip currents.
