SC DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES HURRICANE MATTHEW FLOOD MAPS

September 19, 2018  10 a.m.

Conway, South Carolina – South Carolina Department of Natural Resources has created a map showing the flooding the occurred with Hurricane Matthew in 2016. Hurricane Florence flooding is expected to match those flooding levels and in many cases exceed those levels. This mapping application, available on Horry County’s website, allows users to search by address and the map will zoom to that location. The hatched areas identify areas impacted by Hurricane Matthew and are expected to be impacted by Hurricane Florence flooding.

It is important to note, residents should prepare to expect flood heights equal to or greater than those experienced during Hurricane Matthew.

NOTE: Residents should not rely on this map or underlying flood data as being certain or determinative, as conditions resulting from Hurricane Florence are unprecedented and are in flux. Residents should err on the side of caution and make decisions based on their own assessment of what is best for their safety and well-being and the preservation of their property. Horry County Government cannot and does not assume such responsibility by providing information and forecasts as has been made available to it by State and Federal authorities.

The Waccamaw River outside of Conway could exceed Hurricane Matthew flood levels by three feet in about a week, according to the latest projections Tuesday morning.

Flood waters are not expected to reach their peak for about seven to 10 days, according to the latest National Weather Service information. The river is expected to reach 19.7 feet, which would beat the record of 17.9 feet.

The Waccamaw River at Freeland is expected to crest at 23 feet on about Sept. 21. The Waccamaw at Longs is expected to crest at 24 feet on about Sept. 22 or 23. The river is projected to crest at around 28 feet about Sept. 28 in the Bucksport area, forecasters said.

The river is already in major flood status.

Avoiding significant traffic delays in Conway

Conway officials are encouraging motorists to take a different route to sidestep “significant travel delays.”

Closed-off roads from flooding in Horry County and the construction of the flood prevention project have prompted the city to urge alternative routes to travelers.

South Carolina Department of Transportation workers are building the man-made barriers on U.S. 501 Bypass in Conway, Taylor Newell, a city spokesman, said in a news release.

SCDOT has shut down both lanes of U.S. 501 northbound into Conway to finish the project “until further notice,” according to Newell.

 

SCDOT Flood Protection Project on US 378 Begins has begun in Two Locations

 Both lanes of Highway 501 northbound, into Conway, are closed due to the flood prevention project until further notice. Northbound traffic is being diverted to Highway 501 business. In addition, southbound traffic is limited to one lane over the bridge.

Motorists that need to travel northbound are encouraged to use SC 31 to SC 22 to continue on Highway 501 north. Highway 501 Business is not an approved truck route, trucks must use SC 31 to SC 22 as well.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) and its Team South Carolina partners will being work on two locations of US 378 in the Pee Dee region on Sunday September 16.

Operations will be underway to construct a flood barrier to protect the highway from Hurricane Florence floodwaters that are expected to overtop the bridges by Tuesday without this protective barrier at these locations:
US 378 at Lynches River, approximately two miles east of Lake City.
The US 378 interchange at the US 501 Bypass in Conway.

Motorists should expect delays and alternative traffic patterns In the vicinity of these two work zones. The construction of these barriers is expected to be complete by Monday evening.

SCDOT has cleared all roads of trees and debris in the counties affected by the storm except for a few locations involving downed power lines. However, SCDOT urges drivers to continue to use extreme caution on the roads and obey the reduced speed limits when driving through work zones, particularly at these work sites on US 378.

Residential Sewer Pumping

During power outages customers that are served by an individual residential sewer pumping unit should limit their water usage.  If a customer is experiencing a power outage at his home, then the sewer pumping unit is also out of power and not operating.  A typical residential pumping unit holds about 70 gallons.  Water service to a home without power will not be impacted by the outage.  Once power is restored to the home, the pumping unit will return to normal operating conditions.

POTENTIAL WASTEWATER CONTAMINATION OF FLOOD WATER.

 The public is advised to stay out of flood and storm waters due to the possibility of sewer contamination. Flood waters pose various risks, including infectious diseases, leaking septic systems, dead animals, and wastewater contamination from rain-induced sewage spills.
