Just as Texas begins the process of rebuilding from Hurricane Harvey, Mexico is rocked by its worst Earthquake in a century, Hurricane Katia is moving into Mexico, and Hurricane Jose is on the tail of Irma, the Southeast braces for what could be one of the most destructive natural disasters in history. Here in Charleston, it appears we may be spared from a direct hit, but our coastal area will feel the effects with heavy winds and rain and tornado like conditions.
As we brace for the next few days, our thoughts are with Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina and beyond.
This is not new to Charleston, so businesses, hotels and homes are taking the proper precautions. If you aren’t from these parts, there are an unnerving look of quietness in the Lowcountry as we prepare for the next 72 to 96 hours.
Here are some images of Charleston, SC preparing for Hurricane Irma.
Be safe everyone.
