Beginning October 1, South Carolina has been inundated with unprecedented amount of rainfall: More than two feet, in some places.

We’ve all seen the shocking images out of downtown Columbia (which got a foot of rain) and downtown Charleston (which got more than 16 inches).

How did the rest of the state fare?

From October 1-4, Mount Pleasant (located northeast of Charleston) received a whopping 27 inches of rain.  Kingstree and Dalzell got 22 inches, while 21 inches fell on Georgetown.  Nineteen inches fell on Sumter, 18 inches on Summerville, and 17 inches on Moncks Corner.

More rain is falling today, so expect those numbers to climb even further.

For some historical context, average annual rainfall in Charleston is 51 inches, while Columbia receives an estimated 46.3 inches a year.

God's wrath October 5, 2015 at 10:07 am

God is punishing SC because they hate gays,hispanics, black people, muslims, and women who do not know their place. They think love thy neighbor, love thy enemy, and feed the poor is Sharia law; which they hate.

God’s Wrath,
I hate you.
U are stupidly posting partisan, hateful messages when people are mourning loved ones, trying to salvage their homes and lives.
You are a person full of hate and spite and not worthy of the air you breath.

Does your Mom’s trailer have flood insurance, GT?

He put you in your place October 5, 2015 at 11:59 am

Go spit your teeth, out. Because whoever posted that slapped your stupid ass so hard, I’m sure it cracked up your teeth.

And fact is: He’s Absolutely right, and he made you look like a big fucking Dumbass. We need more of him, and a whole Hell of a lot less of idiots like you. YOU are the problem. He;s the solution.

GrandTango October 5, 2015 at 1:09 pm

I wish I had teeth to spit out. I have medicaid but too lazy to go to the dentist. You know how us rednecks are.

U do not flatter BigT October 5, 2015 at 2:46 pm

I once saw BigT tell you: Don’t try this at home, because you’ll make a fucking idiot of yourself.

Not that you were not already a fucking idiot, but you do prove BigT exactly right.

He not only has something very pertinent to say, he says it with force and power, that is rare in the written word. You present yourselves was a weak and ignorant Dumbasses.

Trying to emulate BigT just magnifies how much you AIN’T him.

GrandTango October 5, 2015 at 1:08 pm

Yes, that money is OURS. MINE AND FLIPS. We took it fair and square from you taxpayers thanks to the government! STOP TRYING TO MAKE US GET JOBS!

CorruptionInColumbia October 5, 2015 at 10:45 am

Rain???? Aw hell, I didn’t know it was rain. I thought that wet dream I had a week or two ago came true.

CorruptionofRationality October 5, 2015 at 11:07 am

What dream? That one where all mass shootings in the USA are hoaxes designed to take your guns? Yeah, that a pretty stupid fucking wet dream, moron.

CorruptionInColumbia October 5, 2015 at 11:30 am

Hi asswipe. Just because some of us don’t believe every (highly) questionable story that Big Brother feeds us and you do is no reason to get mad at those of us with criticsl thinking skills.

CorruptionofRationality October 5, 2015 at 11:58 am

Mad? Why get mad at a clearly stupid conspiracy-tard?
So, how did the government fake that mass shooting in Oregon, again?

CorruptionInColumbia October 5, 2015 at 12:22 pm

So, are you one of the government employees who crafted the Sandy Hook production or are you otherwise vested in its success?

Fan of Rationality October 5, 2015 at 1:12 pm

I think he’s vested in keeping his sanity, something you’ve clearly let go of.

Liberal-Tarians R as worhtless October 5, 2015 at 2:40 pm

C-I-C…you are a Liberal-Tarian because you are stupid. Not as ignorant as a liberal, but still stupid. Please just admit that and give up….

CorruptionofRationality October 6, 2015 at 12:13 am

Great. More crazy conspiracy babble from the head nut bag.

U play both sides, Dumbass October 5, 2015 at 12:05 pm

See what sucking a liberal dick one day does, and then trying to act Conservative, like you have a brain, at other times.

I don’t fucking want you on my side, because you kiss the liberals ass, which makes you dangerous. And Liberalism is a religion that does not ALLOW anyone to EVER think for himself.

It’s why you fucking Liberal-Tarians are Unfit, and get about 3% of the vote, if you’re lucky.

Will you go through life as an idiot, voting for destructive people??…or will you wise up and vote Conservative, and Pro-American???…or continue to ride the fence, hoping pop culture will like you?

Congaree Gamecock October 5, 2015 at 12:12 pm


Q: What do your Repulicans and Lesbians have in common?
A: They both don’t do dick.

Great Joke October 5, 2015 at 1:11 pm

As good as your joke is, it isn’t better than the joke that GrandTango’s life is.

confusionIncolumbia October 5, 2015 at 12:39 pm

lol…he said he voted for Sheheen last night.Hates God,is pro abortion and for gay marriage YET calls himself a conservative.

Go figure.

God told us of you October 5, 2015 at 2:38 pm

Liberal-Tarians think they can serve 2 masters. You will love one and hate the other.

Look at FITSNews…Never met a Democrat it didn’t LOVE…and Never met a Republican it likes. God was Exactly right about that…(of course)…

And I’d imagine C-in-C is the same. Evil corrupts all that it touches…and the Democrat Party is filled w/ evil, if nothing else.

TroubleBaby October 5, 2015 at 11:39 am

God must have decided Columbia & Charleston were the equivalent of Sodom & Gomorrah.

Can’t say I blame him. Unfortunately the turds running both places remain, he must have remembered his rainbow promise after the third day of his 40 day flood routine.

Too bad.

Call The Plumber October 5, 2015 at 1:07 pm

Even God himself can’t flush the turd named Benjamin? That’s a bad sign.
