Chatham is in a Tropical Storm and Storm Surge Warning, and a Hurricane Watch. Dorian is expected to arrive in our area shortly bringing sustained Tropical Storm force winds which are anticipated to continue until 6 PM tomorrow (Thursday) night. These winds could cause structural damage and could also bring down powerlines leading to power outages.
We are also expecting to see coastal rainfall of 6-10 inches and inland rainfall of 4-8 inches in our area; additionally we are expecting storm surge of 3-5 feet. The combination of rainfall and storm surge increases the risk for dangerous flash flooding in our area.
Isolated brief tornadoes are possible, mainly along and east of I-95.
The Talmadge Memorial Bridge is closed.
