Heavy rainfall causes road closures in Florence

FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - Due to recent heavy rainfall, low lying areas of Florence County are once again experiencing flooding which is making some roads dangerous or impassable.  As darkness approaches, the danger on these roads and other flooded areas increases.  The following roadways have been closed until further notice, according to Major Michael Nunn:

  • The dirt portion of Meadow Prong Road in Effingham, SC from U.S. Highway 301 to Fork Road;
  • East Black Creek Road in Florence, SC from TV Road;
  • Langford Road in Florence, SC from TV Road to East Black Creek Road; and
  • Nina Lane, Creekside Drive and Crooked Creek Drive in Quinby, S.C.

Nunn said, motorists are urged to use extreme caution while traveling in these areas and to be on the look out for hazards such as washed out roadways and bridges, submerged obstructions and power lines.  Some of these areas are only assessable by boat.  

Anyone experiencing an emergency in these or any other areas is urged to call 911.

FCSO would like to remind motorists that it against the law to drive around a barricade or remove or alter a barricade.
