Sumter County is under a flash flood watch through Memorial Day evening as heavy rains from Subtropical Storm Alberto could cause flooding across most of SC. The weather service said another 2 inches (5 centimeters) of rain was possible in the Wilmington area.
As a reminder, NEVER drive through flood waters. CBS Baltimore reports that Ellicott City, which has been recovering from a devastating flood from July 2016, was getting deluged by unsafe flood waters Sunday afternoon, which has prompted a flash flood emergency. It takes little water to move a vehicle off the road and into deeper water.
Authorities said they had no immediate reports of fatalities or injuries. "It was a constant rain but not a heavy rain", said Regina Myers, emergency management director in Walker County northwest of Birmingham.
Spokeswoman Karen Spicer in Howard County says she has no immediate information of any deaths after flash floods coursed through streets in Ellicott City, Maryland on Sunday.
