Huge Waves Hit Folly Beach From Hurricane Irene

Hurricane Irene’s wind and rain may have brushed past Charleston, but the surge and wave action did not. Yesterday at Folly Beach saw some of the largest swells many have ever seen there. These pictures were taken by James Island resident and frequent Folly surfer Michael Overcash. I don’t know how to officially measure wave height but they look to be approaching 20 feet.



  1. Just guessing 12-15 ft. Freaking amazing for east coast as they look like waves in Hawaii.
