The impacts of Charleston flash flooding [Ep. 368]

For the first time since 2019, flooding in Charleston Saturday prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Flash Flood Warning. The South Carolina coastal city is no stranger to flooding. The city's downtown historic district typically floods during heavy rains - but as heavy rains caused floodwaters to rise and push into downtown businesses, including the Historic Charleston City Market, exceptional flooding occurred beyond what has become all-too-normal. This week, we're looking at how this flooding is different than past flooding - and what can be done to help the residents, businesses, and tourists. We'll chat with a resident who was an eyewitness to flooding that occurred Saturday, and again on Tuesday, during severe storms. We'll also talk about severe thunderstorms that produced damaging winds in the form of microburst and macrobursts in both North Carolina and South Carolina. Plus a look at the Atlantic tropical outlook, which has a tropical system likely to form in the Gulf of Mexico before bringing tropical moisture to the Southeast. #northcarolina #southcarolina #weather #ncwx #scwx #chws #charleston #flooding #flood SUBSCRIBE TO OUR PODCAST: https://anchor.fm/carolinaweather SUPPORT US ON PATREON: https://patreon.com/carolinaweathergroup VISIT OUR WEBSITE: https://carolinaweathergroup.com The Carolina Weather Group, which operates a weekly talk show of the same name.
