Flash Flooding Leads to Washed Out Roads, Debris in York County

YORK COUNTY, S.C. – Neighbors in York County are cleaning up after heavy rain brought flash flooding.

It left washed out roads, along with standing water, and debris in people’s yards.

Deputies blocked a bridge on Mobley Store Road after a driver got stuck trying to cross over the South Fork Fishing Creek.

“I’m not sure how much it rained, but it was, it was really coming down,” says York County resident Kingsley Deese.

Closer to Rock Hill, Deese swept up his sidewalk after the creek there overflowed it’s banks, leaving part of Regin Lane closed too.

“A lotta, a lotta water. Filled up real quick,” Deese says.

Up the road, Colton Guffey looked out to see the road and his front yard underwater.

“Unusual. Haven’t seen this much flooding in the yard,” Guffey explains. He says it’s been awhile since he’s seen so much rain at one time.

“Quite heavy. As it started pouring down, I opened up the windows just to kind of feel it, and it was really bad, um, calmed down for a bit and then seemed to start right back up,” Guffey says.

No word how long it will take to repair Flat Rock Road, where the road washed out between Howell Road and Quarry Road.

“They’ll have to do a lot of work down there where the pipe runs underneath the road. And that will probably be the only area, but we don’t know how long it will take,” says York County resident Sandy Clark.
