Last time I knew I95 closed was during an epic snowstorm in the 80's when it snowed all the way down to Fla I10.

Now they're saying Nat Guard called up at 9am but can't get to their post; 100's to 1000's of homes on the Gills Creek watershed that need to be checked. Fast water evac going on all over.

My dad's over 70 YO & he said he ani't never seen anything like this. Hugo wasn't even this bad.

Pet Store under water not know if animals are out - close to 5 feet of water there. WOW. Don't know what road yet, but Gills Creek watershed edit to add: Wildcat/ Ft Jackson Blvd area -this is where the triple dam breaches have occurred

trying to figure out where this is
will add to edit later
I think this is just south of HWY 378/HWY76 aka Garner's Ferry Rd where the Gills Creek area failures -- 12-16" of rain since midnite I think- I believe that's what caused the catastrophic cascading multiple earthen dam failures.
Airbase Road lead to McIntire JNGB - joint national Gaurd - These people trying to get to Guard duties and can't get there

Arkadia Lakes area - PPL can't get out b/c the roads have collapsed.

Gawd almighty what a Cluster $#%^ Our esteemed Gov Haley hasn't seen fit to make a comment or activate Nat Guard yet??? WTF???

Per a tweet to CH19 live feed - another pond breach - Rimer Pond Road Blythewood on Rice Creek. As you can see these lakes/ponds are interconnected and linked - when one goes, everything downstream stands a good chance to go too!

Schools and universities in the affected areas are putting out notices they'll be closed Mon--check with your local area. With so many roads and bridges out I can see why.

Thank you. I'm just north of all this mess, no rain, but lots of wind gusts - trees down in spots in Charlotte. If that fire hose rain stream shifts north then I'll be in the thick of it.




Just heard some ppl in Sumter Co being rescued from rooftops --my folks are in N. Sumter away from the swamp areas that are flooding.

Also, caskets floating in Sumter co at Evergreen Cemetery

over 20" of rain in 3 days in Sumter.

A times like these social media can do a lotta good.

Follow the emergency services tweets, wait it out, and don't go into the water-It may seem calm on the surface but it's what you can't see is the danger such as undercurrents and debris, and don't waste your phones battery power as you may need that later to receive future bulletins.

May the force be with you all.
