...THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 545 PM EDT FOR
CENTRAL RICHLAND COUNTY...

At 507 PM EDT, radar indicated that heavy rain had moved out of the
warning area. However, runoff from previous heavy rains will lead to
continued street flooding in some areas in the near term. Local law
enforcement and media reports several roads flooded and closed,
generally in the vicinity of Five Points in Columbia, Blossom St,
and Main and Whaley St, and some other locations. Automated rain
gages near the University of South Carolina, and near Gills Creek,
measured 1.5 to 1.8 inches of rain in less than one hour. This,
combined with already saturated conditions from flooding the
previous day, led to the street flooding.  Motorists should use
caution this evening.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Columbia, Forest Acres, Dentsville, Woodfields, St. Andrews, Arcadia
Lakes, Five Points, Woodfield and Fort Jackson.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.
