Flash flood warning for Charleston, Berkeley ends following heavy rain

CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Officials with the National Weather Service say a flash flood warning for Berkeley and Charleston counties has ended following heavy rain and flooding in some areas.

The warning was issued Tuesday afternoon for south central Berkeley County and central Charleston County. Pictures and videos from downtown Charleston and the North Charleston area showed flooding in some streets and parking lots.

According to the National Weather Service, the heaviest rain moved out of the area late Tuesday evening with light rain continuing into the late night. 

Throughout the afternoon and evening, viewers submitted pictures of flooding throughout the Lowcountry. 

Keith Edgington took a picture of a police cruiser stuck in water in the area of Ashley Phosphate and Dorchester around 5 p.m. Christina Gourdine was on her way to a friend's house in North Charleston when she snapped up a picture of a kayaker along a flooded road in the Archdale subdivision. 

Charleston police had also shut down a number of roads in downtown Charleston earlier on Tuesday due to flooding. Police announced around 9:30 p.m. that all roads that had been shut down were now open.
