I would guess all the subs are clearing out of harbor, if at all possible. I can remember leaving Weapons Station one time in the seventies due to a Hurricane. Didn't add anytime to the refit, just increased the hours of work and canceled liberties. We left when we were supposed to for patrol.

Isn't it quite aways off-shore to diveable depths? Through swells generated by incoming gale force easterly winds; an unappetizing thought.

It has been a long time, but I seem to remember the hundred fandom curve sixty miles out from Charleston.

I know I've seen posts regarding Charleston boats  submerging in the Cooper River for 'canes in that area.
