Severe weather causes accidents, traffic delays


The drive home for some motorists took longer than usual Wednesday afternoon due to severe weather and accidents.

Multiple factors led to clogged up traffic all along I-526. The heavy traffic started as severe weather caused visibility issues.

There were numerous accidents on other roads throughout the Lowcountry that caused delays during the afternoon commute.

A cold front is moving east with a line of showers and thunderstorms at around 30 mph. Look for some heavy rainfall, gusty winds and dangerous lightning between now and after dinner.
