VIDEO: Tidal Flooding on the Battery in Downtown Charleston

Our partners at Live 5 News have been covering the high tide flooding all morning along the battery in Downtown Charleston. 

The winter storm off the coast has been pushing wind and rain on-shore. That in combination with moon high tide has given Charleston an 8 foot high tide which is a major flood event. The storm is pushing wind and water into the harbor giving us an effect similar to a storm surge during a hurricane. 

Watch some of the videos and see the waves crashing along the battery walls.
