Flash Flood Warning
Issued: 5:23 PM EDT May. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a

* Flash Flood Warning for portions of...
Charleston County in southeastern South Carolina...

* until 1115 PM EDT

* at 520 PM EDT, radar rainfall estimates indicate that 1.5 to 2.5
inches of rain has fallen across Charleston and surrounding areas
since 2 PM. The previous heavy rainfall resulted in multiple
flooded roads and a couple of water rescues. Based on latest
reports, several roads remain closed due to lingering flood
waters. Through 7 PM, showers and thunderstorms will result in
rounds of moderate rainfall. In addition, a cluster of strong to
severe storms is expected to move across the Charleston peninsula
during the early to mid evening hours. These storms will likely
provide torrential rainfall rates. The arrival of the heavy
downpours will overlap with this evenings high tide, resulting in
significant street flooding and building flooding. Many roads will
be impassable.

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

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

High tide will inhibit runoff of heavy rain, flooding areas of poor
drainage in downtown Charleston. Areas most prone to flooding include
the Market, Crosstown, East Bay street and Morrison drive.

Report flooding directly to the Charleston National Weather Service
at 1-888-383-2024 or email your reports to NWS.Charlestonsc@noaa.Gov.

accumulations of 1 to 3 inches. Flash flooding will be
possible, especially if heavy rain persists in areas that saw
heavy rainfall on Monday. If the heavy showers and thunderstorms
affect coastal areas around the 645 PM high tide, more
significant flooding is possible.

* Flooding could occur quickly, especially in low-lying and poor
drainage areas. Be prepared for the possibility of widespread
street flooding and flooded properties.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be prepared to protect life and property, especially in areas
prone to flooding. If flooding develops, move to higher ground
immediately. If driving, be prepared for flooded roadways and
possible Road closures.
