... A Flash Flood Warning remains in effect until 730 PM EDT for
southern Berkeley... central Charleston and southeastern Dorchester

At 610 PM EDT... National Weather Service Doppler radar continued to
indicate area of heavy rain capable of producing flash flooding.
These storms were located along a line extending from Archdale to 10
miles southeast of Jamestown... moving northeast at 15 mph.

Doppler radar has shown as much as 4 to 5 inches of rain since this
afternoon and an additional 1 to 2 inches can still occur. There
have also been reports of at least One Road closed in Berkeley
County due to flash flooding.

Flash flooding is expected in and around Charleston Intl Airport...

Sangaree... Shadowmoss... Archdale... crowfield Plantation... I-26/I-526

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Avoid driving into water on the Road. The water is usually deeper
than it appears and the Road may be washed out. Only one foot of
water will stall a vehicle and less than two feet of water can float
and carry away a vehicle. Flooding is the number one weather-related
cause of death in the United States. When encountering flooded roads
make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

To report significant flooding... please contact the National Weather
Service in Charleston toll free at 1-888-383-2024 or email your
reports to NWS.Charlestonsc@noaa.Gov. Reports can also be sent
through twitter using #wxreport.
