A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been
reported. People in or near locations susceptible to flooding should
take necessary precautions immediately to safeguard life and

areas where water covers the roadway. Low lying areas like retention
ponds and drainage ditches become hidden from view when flooded.
Flood waters are usually deeper than they appear. When encountering
flooded roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Expires 6:00 AM EDT on October 11, 2015

... Flash Flood Watch in effect through late tonight...

northeast South Carolina... coastal Georgetown... Darlington...
Dillon... Florence... inland Georgetown... Marion... Marlboro...
Williamsburg... coastal Horry and inland Horry.

* Through late tonight.

* Additional rainfall will average 1 to 2 inches across the watch
area. Higher amounts are possible where heavier showers
repeatedly move across the same general area. This rain will be
falling on saturated... to in some cases... flooded soils. This
will not only aggravate ongoing flooding... but may lead to
renewed areas of flooding.

* Smaller waterways may again flood. In more urban areas...
drainage systems may not be able to keep up where heavy rain is
persistent. Many large Stem rivers are already in flood from the
long duration of heavy rain not even a week ago. Additional
rainfall will likely slow their recession and prolong the
