More rain is in store for South Carolina, the National Weather Service reports.
No sooner had the heavy rain stopped in South California, than the rain was forecast again for this region.
After 4 days without rain when California tried to recovers itself from the recent damaging floods, the National Weather Service informs that rain is to come again.
The recent heavy rain have caused significant flooding. While some parts still struggle to recover, others remain closed.
This weekend, a storm system will bring rain which will get intensified on Saturday. However, meteorologists tried to comfort the population by announcing that the rain will not be torential and will not affect additional areas:
“Rainfall amounts should average between 1-2 inches in most of the flood-ravaged areas. However, a few locations could see locally higher amounts.”
Sel Hemingway, the administrator of Georgetown, a region which was very affected by recent flooding, stated that he doesn’t want to hear about rain again and that he hopes it will not fall in large quantities.
After this rainy weekend, meteorologists predicted several dry days.
Columbia, South Carolina’s capital was strongly affected after more than 20 inches of rain fell over almost 2 days.
Gov. Nikki Haley advized people in Georgetown and other coastal regions to be on the ball, as the quantity of waters keeps increazing. Although some houses were isolted by the water, there was no need for people to be evacuated, although the governor informed that this could happen at any time.
The officials declared that the rivers would come back to normal in a few days.
People started making donations for those affected by the infuriated waters. Haley suggested them to come and help people with the recovery by cleaning up the areas.
