CONWAY River dwellers along the Waccamaw are seeing the remnants of Hurricane Irma -- several homes are surrounded by water in Lees Landing and nearby marshes are starting to flood area roads.
The river had already reached action stage of 10 feet before rain bands from Irma showered over the county on Monday.
The Waccamaw has since breached the 11 foot minor flood stage mark. Water levels climbed to nearly 11.6 feet on Thursday, by Friday afternoon, the gauge at Conway read 11.4 feet.
The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning until Monday night for low-lying areas including Savannah Bluff, Pitch Landing, Riverfront South and Lees Landing.
Never miss a local story.
“People with interests along the river should take the necessary precautions to protect life and property from the flood waters,” the weather service said in the warning.
The water is still a couple of feet below the Conway Riverwalk, but the Waccamaw River Park on Depot Road is flooded and that area is closed to the public. Depot Road was not flooded on Friday.
Although water from the marshes is creeping over the roads in Lees Landing, the river has not completely flooded the boat ramp.
Lees Landing Circle was passable on Friday morning.
