Portion of downtown road closed as Charleston Co. flood advisory expires

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Charleston Police put up barricades on Ashley Avenue at Bennett and Berry streets because of flooding downtown, according to a tweet from police spokesman Charles Francis. 

The partial road closure came just minutes before the National Weather Service allowed a flood advisory for much of Charleston County to expire.

Heavy rainfall during high tide Monday morning resulted in a flood advisory for downtown Charleston, as well as Sullivan's Island, Isle of Palms, and other parts of eastern Charleston County. The flood advisory expired at 8:45 a.m. as the rain began to make its way north. High tide for downtown Charleston came at 7:37 a.m., with low tide coming at 1:57 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.

Weather officials say rainfall rates are no longer sufficient to produce flooding.

Motorists should continue to use caution as water may still be on some roadways.
