Charleston, S.C. (WCIV) — Charleston County has issued a high wind bridge advisory and the Lowcountry is now in a Condition Red warning.
Officials are suspending all EMS operations due to wind speeds reaching more than 40 mph.
Condition Red Warning:
When the Emergency Operation Center receives reports from law enforcement officers that sustained wind speeds have reached 40 mph, the media will be asked to put out a message to the public that high span (65 feet or higher) or exposed bridges are unsafe for public travel.
At these wind speeds, law enforcement officers may not be present at bridges due to unsafe conditions.
Anyone who drives over bridges against the advisory is doing so at their own risk.
