hardest hit areas. You should consider a place of safety if you
live near a body of water or in a low-lying areas.

of additional rainfall are expected along the coast and coastal
interior... and 1-2 inch amounts over deeper interior locals of
NE SC and se NC. A drying trend is expected late tonight.
