CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Carriage horses in downtown Charleston were ordered off the streets just before noon Wednesday.
The horses were pulled as Charleston police were forced to close streets and quick downpours continued to hit the downtown area.
Market Street between Meeting Street and East Bay, a heavily trafficked area for the horses, was closed because of flooding as of 11:34 a.m.
There were also multiple reports of cars getting stuck in floodwaters in the area.
In late May, the horses were taken off the streets for four consecutive days because of the heat.
