Charleston deputies warn Awendaw residents of flooding

AWENDAW, S.C. (WCIV) -- Charleston County deputies say the heavy rains in the area have caused them to close down one street and warn motorists of other areas.

According to deputies, Guerrins Bridge Road between Drew Lane and Willow Creek has been shut down because of water covering the roadway. The water is deep enough to make the road impassable, officials said.

There is also standing water on Highway 17 near the Awendaw Town Hall and Upper Doar Road which is expected to flood as the rains continue.

Deputies are advising people to find alternate routes around the affected areas.
