COLUMBIA, S.C. — Flooding from the rains of Hurricane Matthew is still a danger in the northeastern part of South Carolina.
The National Weather Service says the Waccamaw River at Conway will likely break its record crest set in 1928 this week. The Great Pee Dee River in Marion and Florence counties as well as the Black River in Williamsburg County also remain in major flood stage.
The Department of Transportation reported 107 roads were still closed by the storm, along with 23 bridges.
Gov. Nikki Haley says it is still too early to estimate how much damage the hurricane caused in South Carolina. She urged residents to donate to the One SC Fund. SCANA Corp. donated $200,000 to the fund, which helped repair 1,500 homes after the 2015 floods.
