Overnight thunderstorms have caused flash flooding in parts of the CSRA. Doppler radar estimates that portions of Richmond, Columbia, Edgefield, and Aiken Counties have received 4-8" of rain. This has lead to road closures and some evacuations.
North Augusta Public safety has informed News Channel 6 that some residents of Willow Wick Apartments & The Grove Apartment complex are being evacuated due to rising water. Reports are coming in that water has risen to waist-level in the parking lot.
Here is a list of various road closures in the region:
