Florence County officials: Residents along Lynches River, Great Pee Dee River should prepare to evacuate

September 20, 2018

EFFINGHAM, S.C. – All Florence County Citizens that live along the Lynches River and the Pee Dee River should be prepared to evacuate if necessary. Both of these rivers are forecast to be in major flood stage by this weekend.

Continue to monitor local media and emergency officials for evacuation directives when they become necessary. This is a potentially dangerous situation.

If you are a resident of Florence County along either of these rivers, and your home or property flooded during Hurricane Matthew or the October 2015 Flood, it is very lightly this event will cause similar flooding damage.
