Areal Flood Advisory
Statement as of 7:34 AM EDT on August 31, 2015

The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a

* Flood Advisory for minor flooding for poor drainage areas for...
Berkeley County in southeastern South Carolina...
Charleston County in southeastern South Carolina...

* until 900 am EDT

* at 731 am EDT... Doppler radar indicated very heavy rain due to
showers and thunderstorms repeatedly moving over the same area.
Very heavy rain will produce standing water on roads. Two to three
inches of rain have already fallen this morning.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
McClellanville... St. Stephen... Awendaw... Jamestown... Santee Coastal
Reserve... Bull Island... Saint Stephen and Garris Landing.

An additional 2 to 3 inches of rain is expected over the area. Minor
flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas is likely.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

This heavy rainfall will result in significant ponding of water on
area roads and in low spots. Slow down to reduce the risk of
hydroplaning. If water covers the entire roadway or is flowing... find
another Route. The water is probably much deeper than it appears and
only one foot of water can stall a vehicle. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.
