* until 230 PM EDT Friday

* at 218 PM EDT... area emergency management agencies reported that
high water levels continued across part of the warned area... with
some roads and homes still experiencing significant flooding.
Although little to no additional rainfall is expected through
Friday... water levels are expected to only slowly recede across
many flooded areas. Some of the more higher impacted flood areas
includes regions along the Ashley... edisto and Santee rivers...
including the surrounding creeks and tributaries. Water levels may
hold steady... or even rise some through Friday. All those that
live near a river or creek should continue to monitor water
levels... and prepare to move away from waterways if water levels
continue to rise.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Charleston... North Charleston... Mount Pleasant... Summerville...
Goose Creek... Hanahan... Moncks Corner and McClellanville.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall earlier in the week will
continue to cause flooding of small creeks and streams... highways
and underpasses in urban areas. Additionally... country roads and
farmlands along the banks of creeks... streams and other low lying
areas are subject to flooding.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.
