Flood water closes roads in Grand Strand, Pee Dee

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) Several roads across the Grand Strand and Pee Dee experienced flooding, causing them to become impassible on Thursday.  The South Carolina Highway Patrol is reporting a few roads closed due to flood waters:

Horry County

SC 19 and Maple Wild

Edwards Road, 1/4 mile off SC 319

Flood Warnings are in effect for Florence and Marion counties until further notice. The Pee Dee River is expected to rise above flood stage.  A Flood Advisory is in effect for Marlboro County.

Showers are moving across the Pee Dee region and can be tracked on the WMBF Interactive Radar. View the rain on your street level to see when the showers will stop.

Showers started at the beach Thursday morning with some very heavy pockets of rain and continued to move through the area later in the afternoon.

The good news is our area will see some slightly drier air move in by late Thursday evening. The dry air will move into the Pee Dee Thursday, but it will still be humid near the beaches.

This will keep storm chances at 30 percent inland and closer to 60 percent near the beaches, but by Friday, the dry air finally spreads over the entire area.

During this round of wet weather, our viewers and news team captured the storms and flooding first hand. You can view those photos on WMBFNews.com and share them with your friends.
