The City of Charleston is also allowing residents who have any concerns about their neighborhood streets flooding tonight or tomorrow morning, potentially damaging cars parked on the street to park free in the CITY OWNED Visitor Center and Aquarium parking garages only. The resident can pull a parking card on entering any city garage.  Upon leaving, the resident can submit the card and tell the attendant that they were in for high tides and rain in their residential area.   This is effective now through eight o’clock on Tuesday morning.  Cars must be out by then for the free parking. 

The National Weather Service has also issued small craft advisories for coastal waters warning seas could run up to 8 feet off the Outer Banks through midday Wednesday.
