#SCFlood: Drain And Stain

“FLOODMAGGEDON” WATERS MOVING TOWARD PALMETTO COAST … The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has posted satellite imagery showing South Carolina’s floodwaters working their way toward the state’s coastline … a development that is going to cause some serious problems in the coming 24 hours.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has posted satellite imagery showing South Carolina’s floodwaters working their way toward the state’s coastline … a development that is going to cause some serious problems in the coming 24 hours.

As the image above clearly shows, a huge stain of muddy floodwater is pouring into Lake Marion.  Meanwhile other satellite images released by the National Weather Service show plumes of dark water loaded with sediment being pumped into the Atlantic Ocean.

At least 5.8 trillion gallons of water fell on the Palmetto State during “Floodmaggedon,” shattering state precipitation records and causing widespread flooding, dam failures and road and bridge washouts.

I forget. Is the Lake Marion water still diverted to Moultrie then by canal to the Cooper river or did they restore its natural path to the Santee?

50/50 split or something like that. There is a dam and diversion canal that Santee Cooper can use to modify the flow.

Those gates are already open spilling water to drop the levels do that the lake can handle it.

Mike at the Beach October 8, 2015 at 8:57 pm

The levels down there are in good shape, though. The spilling is actually slowing down a bit, although if the “bubble” is as big as the state says it could have to spool back up. Some of the federal folks are saying the downstream event won’t be quite as dramatic as Columbia seems to think. Better safe than sorry, I guess.

Here’s to hoping. The midlands are a total mess. I’m down from five ways to leave my house to one. Luckily we had no flood damage but everywhere is 10 miles out the way now at a minimum.

Mike at the Beach October 8, 2015 at 10:17 pm

Everyone is praying the water drops as quickly as it rose, although it usually doesn’t work that way… I surely hope the state has botched up their estimate and the feds are right. How often do you get to say that?!

Huge toilet, but the turd mayor still remains.

Just Me October 8, 2015 at 5:35 pm

My well water is still full of dirt and whatever washed down into it and probably will be for weeks.

The Colonel October 8, 2015 at 6:53 pm

Floodmageddon is not only not over, it won’t be over for months and the rebuilding will take years.

Let me challenge all of you to get out from behind the keyboard and get your hands dirty, if you are looking for opportunities, reply to this post and I can give you a list of places that you can volunteer or donate to. I’ve been working in Lake Catherine the last couple of days and tomorrow will be headed down to the Lower Richland area where they’re way behind on getting houses cleared and desperately in need of assistance
