Bad weather struck the state Wednesday, flooding parts of the coast. Downtown Charleston remained underwater for most of the day after heavy rains pounded the coast, but crews worked throughout Wednesday evening to clear some of the water and debris from the rain.
A tornado watch was issued for 22 of the 46 counties in South Carolina on Wednesday. The watch for eight of those counties remained until 4 a.m. Thursday morning. A high surf advisory was also in effect through Thursday morning and later released. The National Weather Service says the storms will bring in a cold front to the state. Yesterday’s storms have moved out of the area, and the sun is back to shining.
