By Andy Brack | Trillions of gallons of water from weekend rains that pummeled South Carolina continue to flow toward the ocean as Lowcountry rivers are expected to remain above flood stage for several days.
Charleston County leaders this afternoon asked people who live near the Edisto and Santee rivers to evacuate due to rising waters.
“The areas likely to be impacted by the Edisto River include but are not limited to Parkers Ferry Road in Adams Run, Highway 17 near the Charleston/Colleton County line, portions of Jacksonboro,” according to a news release. “The likely impacted areas of the Santee River include South Santee and Germantown. The severity of the flooding will likely vary from one location to another.”
