Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

More flooding to hit SC disaster areas: Gov. Haley

South Carolina’s governor has urged tens of thousands of people in low-lying areas near the coast to evacuate Thursday before a wall of floodwater moving toward the Atlantic inundates large swathes of the state for the next 12 days.

Gov. Nikki Haley, speaking at a news conference in Summerville, warned residents in flood-prone areas of four counties—Dorchester, Charleston, Georgetown and Williamsburg—to “strongly consider evacuating.”

“Don’t underestimate the power of water,” she said.

The warning covers the low-lying area near the rising Waccamaw, Santee and Edisto rivers, and includes the 10,000 residents of Georgetown.

Flooding is expected in Georgetown in the next 12 hours, followed by Jamestown and the Givens Ferry area in the next 72 hours, said Haley on Thursday.

  • The flooding could effect more than 300,000 people, according to various models.
  • Several rounds of flooding since Saturday may have already cost South Carolina at least $300 million in crop losses, said a senior official.
  • Senator Lindsey Graham has warned total cost of the ongoing disasters could exceed $1 billion.
  • 17 of the 19 weather-related deaths during the ongoing catastrophe across the region have occurred in South Carolina.

Meanwhile, the National Weather Service has issued the following forecast for the region:

Isolated severe thunderstorms possible for parts of Mid-Atlantic

The NWS Storm Prediction Center is forecasting a risk of severe thunderstorms Friday afternoon and evening across portions of Mid-Atlantic States. Strong wind gusts will be the primary concern with any thunderstorms that develop.
