Sheriff's Office Emergency Management continues to monitor the path of Hurricane Michael. We will keep you informed

The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Management Division continues to closely monitor Hurricane Michael as it approaches the Gulf of Mexico. According to the National Hurricane Center's 5:00 p.m. advisory, the storm is moving north at 9 miles per hour and has maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour.
Although the storm's impact on our area is not certain, forecasts indicate tropical storm force winds and isolated tornadoes may be possible Wednesday afternoon into Thursday morning. In addition, there is an elevated threat for minor to moderate flooding—mainly associated with high tides—in coastal areas. The rainfall forecast for Wednesday night into Thursday afternoon is 4 to 6 inches.

In advance, we would like to remind you to only believe information released by trusted sources and to avoid misinformation spread through social media. Please tell your family and friends to sign up for the Sheriff's Office's primary communications platform NIXLE to receive up-to-date information on matters of public safety.  

The Sheriff's Office will keep you updated on Hurricane Michael and how it may impact Beaufort County. We also encourage you to monitor the storm on your own through the National Weather Service Charleston

We appreciate your partnership and continued commitment to the safety of our community.
