Charleston... North Charleston... Mount Pleasant... Summerville...

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall earlier in the week will
continue to cause flooding of small creeks and streams... highways
and underpasses in urban areas. Additionally... country roads and
farmlands along the banks of creeks... streams and other low lying
areas are subject to flooding.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.
