...FLASH FLOOD WATCH NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL MIDNIGHT EDT TONIGHT...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* A portion of central South Carolina, including the following
  areas, Calhoun and Orangeburg.

* Until midnight EDT tonight.

* Heavy rainfall mainly associated with an upper-level low
  pressure system may persist in parts of Orangeburg and Calhoun
  counties until around midnight.

* Grounds are saturated from previous rainfall across the area.
  Additional rainfall has the potential to lead to flash
  flooding, especially in locations with poor drainage.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Be especially cautious because it is harder to
recognize flood danger at night. It takes little water to move a
vehicle off the road and into deeper water.
