ROAD CLOSURES: Motorists urged to use caution as flooding, downed trees block roadways

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Reports of flooding, downed branches, trees and power lines are causing headaches for motorists Monday as effects of Tropical Storm Irma make their way to the Lowcountry.

For motorists, the weather can make driving very difficult. Downpours will lead to poor visibility and ponding on roadways. Expect flooding in low-lying areas; for roadways that typically flood during severe weather events, flooding will again be likely.

Motorists should not drive through flooded roads and should absolutely not drive around barricades put up by law enforcement.
