“We haven’t seen this level of rain in the Low Country in 1,000 years”
“We haven’t seen this level of rain in the Low Country in 1,000 years,” said Gov. Nikki Haley during a press conference on Sunday.
Over two feet of rain has fallen in South Carolina due to a recent storm, and as of Sunday residents were told not to leave their homes for any reason.
Multiple casualties have already been reported, including one woman who reportedly drown in standing water.
Curfews and closings
Counties in the flood zones have already canceled school and set curfews to keep people inside their homes while the roads are being repaired.
According to the National Weather Service the damage is far from over. There are warnings spanning up and down the East Coast, including parts of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Virginia.
Be careful out there, this isn’t the kind of shit some stylish rain boots will get you out of.
