The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a

* Flash Flood Warning for...
southeastern Berkeley County in southeast South Carolina...
Charleston County in southeast South Carolina...

* until 600 am EDT

* at 156 am EDT... bands of heavy rain continue to move north
across southeast Berkeley and much of Charleston County. Radar
and spotters report as much as 2 to 4 inches of rain has
fallen across the warned area over the past few hours. Although
high tide has passed and levels are falling... it will take
several more hours for flood waters to recede as heavy rains
fall. An additional 1 to 3 inches will be possible
through 6 am. In addition... numerous roads throughout the
downtown Charleston remain closed due to flood waters. Avoid
travel in the downtown area if possible.

* Flash flooding is expected in and around...
downtown Charleston... west Ashley... North Charleston...
Johns Island... Folly Beach... Kiawah Island... Wadmalaw Island...
Daniel Island... Huger... Mount Pleasant... Isle of Palms...
Awendaw... McClellanville...

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Avoid driving into water on the Road. The water is usually deeper
than it appears and the Road may be washed out. Only one foot of
water will stall a vehicle and less than two feet of water can float
and carry away a vehicle. Flooding is the number one weather-related
cause of death in the United States. When encountering flooded roads
make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

To report flooding... contact the National Weather Service in
Charleston toll free at 1-888-383-2024.

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 6 am EDT early this
morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* southeast South Carolina... including the Charleston Metro area.

* Until 6 am EDT early this morning

* additional heavy rain is likely through early this
morning... especially north of Interstate 26. The risk for flash
flooding continues.

* Flooding could occur quickly... especially in low-lying and
poor drainage areas. Driving could become hazardous as some
area roadways could become impassable due to high water...
especially in urban areas like downtown Charleston and
Savannah around the time of high tide.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be prepared to protect life and property... especially in areas
prone to flooding. If flooding develops... move to higher ground
immediately. If driving... be prepared for flooded roadways and
possible Road closures.
