The South Carolina coast is recovering from days of rain and flooding. It’s been a wet week in the Lowcountry as Tropical Storm Nicole moves past the Carolina coast. In Charleston, clean up crews are working hard to clean up any flooding from all the excess rain. This worker spoke with WCIV in Charleston.
“They’ve been going around cleaning the over 100 miles of ditches that we have and the hundreds of inlets that we have,” says a Charleston crew worker.
Flooding is an issue in Charleston, so city leaders and workers worked hard to prepare for this week’s rain.
“It’s like a giant vacuum cleaner, if you will. And along with that giant vacuum cleaner, it has a pressurized water system so it can actually blow and suck out whatever is in the system,” says a Charleston crew worker.
The Lowcountry is expecting another two to four inches of rain through this evening.
