NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Authorities in part of the Grand Strand are warning of possible flood conditions as rain makes its way to the area Sunday.

Drivers are asked to not drive through standing water, especially in vehicles lower to the ground.

“Please do not drive rapidly through standing water, as it causes a wake and pushes water into our residence and our businesses, causing damage,” the department said in a Facebook post.

Parts of the Grand Strand are expected to see anywhere from 1-2 inches of rain on Sunday, according to WMBF First Alert Meteorologist Matt Bullock.
