* Flood Advisory for Minor Flooding in...
  Central Florence County in northeastern South Carolina...
  Southeastern Darlington County in northeastern South Carolina...
  West central Horry County in northeastern South Carolina...
  Central Marion County in northeastern South Carolina...

* Until 1000 AM EDT

* At 823 AM EDT, Doppler radar showers and a few thunderstorms with
  torrential rains extending from Florence east to near Galivants
  Ferry. As much as 2 to 3 inches of rain has already fallen in some
  areas this morning which has resulted in some minor flooding. An
  additional 1 to 3 inches will be possible through 10 am resulting
  in minor flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
  Florence, Marion, Timmonsville, Pamplico, Quinby, Galivants Ferry,
  Hyman and Mars Bluff.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

This heavy rainfall will result in significant ponding of water on
area roads and in low spots. Slow down to reduce the risk of
hydroplaning. If water covers the entire roadway or is flowing, find
another route. The water is probably much deeper than it appears and
only one foot of water can stall a vehicle. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice, turn around, don`t drown.
