Low-Lying Areas

The Town of Hilton Head Island is a 54 square mile barrier island on the Atlantic Coast in Beaufort County, South Carolina. Naturally occurring events such as hurricanes, storm surge, high tides and heavy rains, which are common to coastal areas, influence flooding in our community.

Areas that are considered low-lying and floodprone are indicated by the Special Flood Hazard Area shaded red on the map provided below.

For questions or concerns regarding flood zones, potential risk of flooding and the hazards associated with flooding, please contact our Floodplain administrator, Shari Mendrick at ShariM@hiltonheadislandsc.gov or 843-341-4687.
