The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a

* Flood Advisory for minor flooding for poor drainage areas for...
Colleton County in southeastern South Carolina...
Beaufort County in southeastern South Carolina...

* until 300 PM EDT

* at 135 PM EDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
thunderstorms. This will cause minor flooding. Overflowing poor
drainage areas will result in minor flooding in the advisory area.
Up to 1 inch of rain in a short period of time have already fallen.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Hilton Head Island... Beaufort... Port Royal... Fripp Island... Shell
Point... Folly Field... Hilton Head Airport... Hunting Island and
Ladys Island.

An additional 1 1/2 to 2 inches of rain in less than an hour is
expected over the area. Minor flooding of low lying and poor
drainage areas is likely.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

This heavy rainfall will result in significant ponding of water on
area roads and in low spots. Slow down to reduce the risk of
hydroplaning. If water covers the entire roadway or is flowing... find
another Route. The water is probably much deeper than it appears and
only one foot of water can stall a vehicle. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

If torrential rain continues and the threat for flash flooding
increases... a Flash Flood Warning may be issued.
