Just as South Carolina begins to heal from the historic floods of October 2015, more flooding has been reported upstate.
On December 30 the South Carolina Highway Patrol reported flooding on many roads in Greenville, Cherokee, Greenwood, Spartanburg, and Laurens counties. A full list of affected roads is here. [LINK: http://www.foxcarolina.com/story/30852755/flooding-reported-across-upstate]
Avoid flooded roads, as cars can be swept away by water.
Greenwood County appears to be worst affected; the American Red Cross has opened a shelter at the Main Street United Methodist Church, 211 North Main Street, Greenwood.
Remember flood defenses:
- Assemble a family emergency kit.
- Be prepared to evacuate at a moment’s notice.
- Heed flood warnings and head to higher ground.
- Never drive or wade in floodwaters. If necessary, abandon your car and head to high ground.
- Keep kids out of floodwater.
- Be especially cautious at night, when it’s hard to recognize rising water.
