Creek’s rising, with flood warnings as rains pour in Lexington County w/ video

As the remnants of Hurricane Sally, that made landfall in the Gulf, move east over South Carolina, we’re getting heavy rain.

A tornado watch has been issued for Lexington County, and 12 other counties, for Thursday. There are also flash flood warnings.

In West Columbia streams that have been reduced to a trickle after days of no rain, have now become swollen, and fast-moving. Below is the creek at Double Branch, on Botanical Parkway in West Columbia.
