beautiful beach. the good news is we are not going to have a lot of damage to this pier. our winds will be strong and steady. this storm is not going to hit the u.s. coastline and certainly not going to be a problem here. but it's the winds, the water at high tide, gayle, and everybody is trying to get ready and watch this storm go by. >> thank you, sam. this morning, many parts of the east already dealing with flooding. hurricane joaquin could make things worse in places like south carolina. is in charleston where inches of rain could come the next coming days. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. south carolina is under a state of emergency and it has nothing to do with hurricane joaquin. already schools are closed near charleston. city government is shut down for the day and people are preparing for what the national weather service says could be potentially life-threatening flash flooding over the next 72 hours. where we are on ashley street in the historic portion of downtown charleston, it is closed. the hospital is behind me. there are other streets leading to the hospital that are open.
