Flooding threat diminished overnight

DARLINGTON, S.C. — Officials with the City of Darlington say that the danger of imminent flooding or flash flooding has progressively diminished overnight. As the waters have crested, the threat is lessening and no longer imminent for residents along Black Creek.

Darlington Fire and Police Departments continue to monitor the water levels along the creeks and at the bridges multiple times per day. While the water levels have risen slightly on Shoshone Drive, we do not expect any new flooding in areas not yet affected by flooding. If there are significant changes, we will release a new report.

Residents are asked to remain vigilant. If you see rising waters near your home, evacuate immediately to higher ground.

The American Red Cross has opened a shelter at the A. W. Stanley Gym, 107 Gary Street, Darlington. The shelter may close at 6 p.m. tonight if no residents come to the facility. The gym would then by placed in standby mode until needed.

Residential garbage collection will run citywide on Saturday as a courtesy due to the erratic schedule following Hurricane Florence and its aftermath.

City offices will return to normal operating schedule of 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
