More rain, flooding forecast along soggy East Coast
The rain isn’t showing any sign of letting up along much of the East Coast, where it’s been coming down for days.
Police in Charleston, South Carolina, say officers are going door-to-door to advise residents to voluntarily evacuate areas that are at risk of flooding. Dozens of streets were closed due to high water, and the city’s historic district was almost entirely shut down.
Chief Greg Mullen says parts of the city are flooding that normally don’t. He says they normally have to deal with flooding for just a few hours, but with this storm, they’re talking days.
Flood watches and warnings are also in effect in Delaware and parts of New Jersey, Maryland and Virginia.
