Rising Rivers And Lakes: A Science Project For SC Kids …



One of our best contributors has a great idea for a science project for Palmetto school kids … one that doubles as a current event.

Of course schools are closed for the foreseeable future … so parents will have to take this project on themselves.

Anyway, our contributor’s idea centers on the flood waters currently filling South Carolina lakes and rivers to the brim … and beyond.  This would be the latest natural disaster drama associated with “Floodmaggedon,” the Palmetto State’s recent rainpocalypse.

How does the science project work?

Easy: Pick a river or lake to see how it rose …

For example the Black River at Kingstree, S.C. (here).

Or the Waccamaw River above Conway, S.C. (which is still rising – here).

Or Lake Marion … which just went above “full pool” (here).

Obviously local officials are monitoring these river levels closely, too … trying to determine whether another round of flooding is headed toward the South Carolina coast.
