* area emergency management agencies reported that high water levels
continued across the area... with some roads and homes still
experiencing flooding. Although no significant rainfall is
expected through the rest of the work week... water levels are
expected to only slowly recede across many flooded areas. The
exception will be areas along the Ashley... edisto and Santee
rivers where Rising River levels will create worsening flood
conditions. Other creeks in the area could also experience rising
water levels. If you live near a river or creek... monitor water
levels and prepare to move away from waterways if water levels
continue to rise.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include but are not
limited to... North Charleston... Summerville... Goose
Creek... Hanahan... Moncks Corner... Huger and McClellanville.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Flooding created by earlier heavy rainfall will continue. Some roads
and bridges remain closed and many areas remain inundated and
inaccessible. 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... and you will not be able to determine if a
Road is washed out.
