... A Flash Flood Warning remains in effect until 1115 PM EDT for
portions of Charleston County...

At 821 PM EDT, radar rainfall estimates and automated rain gauges
indicated that between 2.5 to 4.5 inches of rain has fallen across
the Charleston peninsula and surrounding areas since early this
afternoon. Law enforcement and social media posts indicate that
numerous roads remain closed due to flooding. By 930 PM, additional
showers and thunderstorms are expected to pass over the warned area.
Rainfall rates may range between half to one inch an hour. The
additional rainfall should worsen ongoing flooding and may result in
more flooded areas.

Some locations that will experience flooding
include... Charleston, North Charleston, Mount Pleasant, downtown
Charleston, west Ashley, and Charles Towne Landing.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

at 1-888-383-2024 or email your reports to NWS.Charlestonsc@noaa.Gov.
