For the second month in a row, rainfall in Charleston has broken the record for wettest month and the area is on track to have the wettest year in history.
7.62 inches of rain has been recorded for the month of November so far, beating the 1972 record of 7.35 inches.
On Dewees Island the wetlands and the road’s adjacent easements have been flooded since the great flood. The Island has not had a chance to absorb the moisture and the ground remains saturated.
Historic high tides have also affected the island causing substantial erosion and the closing of the Mytle Dock Road as well as 6 Pipes Road beyond the Six Pipes.
The POA imported sufficient sand and stone this week on the barge to commence repairs to these roads.
