HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

The Federal Aviation Administration is now warning pilots about tall trees near Hilton Head Island Airport.

The FAA said that in addition to the trees, a warning light has gone out on a 260-foot-tall communications tower about 17 miles from the runway, according to the Island Packet.

The notice hasn't yet affected commercial or general aviation at the airport. The county requested a waiver for the notice on Friday, but was denied.
