Below are the locations of incidents:

Traffic Hazard - Freedom Blvd x[Gilbert Dr & Carolinas Hosp]

Horry County Fire Rescue provides additional driving tips:

First and foremost: slow down! It takes longer to stop or adjust in wet weather.

•Stay toward the middle lanes - water tends to pool in the outside lanes.

•Maintain proper following distance (3 Second Rule). This needs to be increased in wet weather.

•Drive in the tracks of a car ahead of you.

•Don't follow large trucks or busses too closely. The spray created by their large tires reduces your vision. Take care when passing them as well; if you must pass, do so quickly and safely.

•Be more alert when driving in wet or slippery conditions. Watch out for brake lights in front of you.
