How did your sister do today? Her neighborhood sounds like the neighborhood I just moved from which flooded today. I lived in Summerville and as far as I know it never flooded like it did today. One exit road was completely blocked off from the main road. There is only one other exit road and haven't heard if that one flooded as well. The power was out in surrounding towns and communities which is to be expected. I'm still waiting to hear back from two friends, but so far nothing yet. I hope your sister and her family are safe. Prayers.My sister in SC has never experienced flooding before. This is her first home.
I’m mostly concerned because of all of the bodies of water that surrounds her house. Her neighborhood has many ponds within the community. But this one specific one is the largest and is less than 50’ from her back yard. There are two additional ponds that could affect her home. One is about 200’ away but this one has another house that backs up to it. So there’s no direct access but somewhat. And the third one is to her left which is a bit shy of 150’.
I’m sure that she & my niece will be staying at my parents for the hurricane as their house isn’t directly impacted by any ponds.
