EDISTO BEACH, SC (WCSC) -

Edisto Beach Police are monitoring the effects of Tropical Storm Julia after seeing damage from the previous storm system two weeks ago.

Police tweeted out a message to residents Wednesday afternoon stating, “Water is now standing on most roads in town. Some areas are several inches deep. Please take you time and drive carefully.”

Chief George Brothers said there were no road closures on the island, but recommends staying inside if possible.

Edisto Beach saw damage in the area when Tropical Storm Hermine traveled through the Lowcountry.

Piles of palmetto branches and leaves could be seen lining the roadway of Palmetto Boulevard.

Several street signs have also been knocked off posts, still unattached from Hermine.

Officials say the storm system for Julia hasn’t been severe. Residents are dealing with a lot of rain, standing water, and some high wind gusts.
