Colleton Co. neighborhood may stay flooded for a “week or two”, officials estimate

Neighborhoods next to the Edisto River remained underwater in Colleton County on Monday, despite three days of clear skies and no rain. “A level we haven’t seen for a few years,” said David Greene, Deputy Chief of Colleton County Fire-Rescue. Greene says the Edisto River was more than 15. 2 high as of Saturday. He said the river floods once it reaches ten feet high. That left around a dozen homes and even more vehicles swamped on Happiness Lane in Ridgeville.
