CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Charleston Police Department officials tweeted that several roads on the peninsula, including President at Bogard and Bennett at Halsey, had to be shut down late Wednesday night due to flooding. The roads were reopened around 2:15 a.m. 

Earlier in the day, the National Weather service had issued a severe thunderstorm warning for Charleston and Berkeley counties, and a flood warning which have all since expired.

Doppler radar earlier indicated heavy rain causing minor flooding across the area.
