Flash Flood Warning
National Weather Service Charleston SC
523 PM EDT TUE MAY 23 2017

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.


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.
