Flash Flood Watch in effect through Sunday morning

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) The National Weather Service in Wilmington has issued a flash flood watch for our area through late Saturday night. Widespread amounts of one to two inches of rain could fall through the day. The rain that falls today could be heavy at times and since it is already falling on saturated ground (in some cases flooded soils) is could aggravate flooding or in some cases cause renewed area of flooding. 

Smaller waterways may fill up and drainage in some areas may not be able to keep up with the rain causing more issues. Many of our rivers are above flood stage and due to the excess amount of rain falling today, the amount of time the rivers take to recede will be prolonged. 

Remember to never drive through flooded roads and always adhere to road signs and blockades. A prolonged time of sunshine is in the forecast by next week.
