9 feet. meteorologists tell me you have to add 7 feet here for high tide. so let's say worst case scenario 9-foot storm surge you add 7 feet on to that 16 feet of water. it's going to somewhere. undoubtedly it's going to damage some of the infrastructure in this area hopefully it won't kill anyone. dawn and chris? >> joel, how has the emergency response been there so far? did people get out or did they hunker down are they staying? >> reporter: well, i spoke to both the mayors of savannah which is obviously where we are and the mayor of island 18 miles it literally juts out on to the atlantic ocean. now i know some people decided to stay there. actually have a party. very very bad idea. the road which is route 80 takes you out to the island is completely submerged underwater. it was this afternoon. that's before all of this. so let's hope for those people as well they certainly will not be able to get off that island.
one point we thought about setting up shop there and we decided it was way too dangero dangerous. some people are bracing it probably a really bad idea. here we saw some police driving by but no first responders for the last three hours and they're probably won't be until the height of this storm is over. if you're a police officer or firefighter you have to go home to your family and they can't be sent out in these horrific conditions. you've got keep that in mine. mandatory evacuation is in place, but, you know, a lot of people left. some obviously decided to stay. guys? >> fox's joel waldman absolutely miserable conditions in sap is a van in a, georgia, joel, thank you. stay safe. all right. now closer look at the storm. let's check in with meteorologist scott williams who's been busy man tonight. hey, scott. >> hi there, chris. continuing to follow the latest with now category two hurricane matthew. but take a look at the last 24 hours. as it continues to just parallel the coast of the southeast.
looking like a buzz saw there as it continues to move towards savannah. beaufort, charleston, looking at some of those damaging winds, and also the feeder bands continuing to rotate in. let's talk about our forecast here at home for the up coming weekend. frontal boundary may be some tropical moisture to the southern part of our area bring us scattered showers. but look at the temperatures for tomorrow. right around 70 the high today in philadelphia made it up to 78 degrees. then as we move toward sunday we're looking at temperatures back below average in the mid 60s. so look at hurricane matthew to our south. also, the frontal boundary off to the west. that frontal boundary will continue to move toward our area so it looks like a dry start to your saturday. we're not talking about a wash out so don't cancel any plans. here's the block at 3:00 in the afternoon. still some showers north and west maybe some rain moving in to new castle county, parts of south jersey and then as we continue on into the afternoon and evening, once again, we're
not looking at widespread rainfall. we might see a tenth to a quarter of an inch of rainfall out of this system and then as we move toward overnight saturday into sunday that front continues to push what rain is left down the shore out to sea as high pressure builds in and clears us out for the second half of the weekend. we're looking at 60 in millville right now. 50s atlantic city and 60 still in the lehigh valley. for tonight, 50 in the bush. 57 degrees in the city. 70 for the high temperature tomorrow with those scattered showers. right now, the latest on matthew it's category two hurricane. winds at 110 miles per hour. but take a look at those feeder bands moving toward savannah, hilton head, charleston tornado watch box in effect until midnight here and in fact we were keeping tabs on a tornado warning for parts of south carolina. so, of course, continuing to watch that as it moves toward the southeast coast overnight tonight and tomorrow for us clouds a few showers tomorrow.
