Flood waters flow through homes in Conway’s Sherwood community
The bad news: Floodwaters are still rising in some parts of Horry County on Monday.
But there’s some good news, too, in that waters are starting to recede in other areas.
Here’s a look at what communities can expect Monday and through this week, according to the National Weather Service.
Conway: The Waccamaw River is still rising near Conway and is expected to crest Wednesday at roughly 22 feet. That’s about 4 feet higher than water levels after Hurricane Matthew in 2016 and Hurricane Floyd in 1999.
Longs: The Waccamaw crested near Longs at 20.22 feet some time Friday or Saturday. The water level is falling and is expected to continue falling through the end of the week.
Bucksport: The Waccamaw is still rising near Bucksport and is expected to crest Wednesday at 28 feet. That’s about 4 feet higher than the water level after Hurricane Matthew.
Socastee: The Intracoastal Waterway is still rising near Socastee and is expected to crest Wednesday at just above 23 feet. That’s about 4 feet higher than after Matthew.
Galivants Ferry: The Little Pee Dee River crested near Galivants Ferry on Friday at 17.19 feet. By Monday morning, the water was at 14.8 feet. The water will recede through the end of the week.
Georgetown: It’s unclear when Georgetown will begin to see floodwaters as the Winyah Bay swells. Georgetown County officials are urging more than 8,000 households to evacuate.
