Anderson Co. prepares for impending severe weather from Florence

News

ANDERSON Co., SC (WSPA) – Counties across the Upstate are preparing for any impacts from Hurricane Florence.

In a meeting on Wednesday with Anderson County officials it was announced their main concern is debris management. Last year during Hurricane Irma hundreds of trees fell across the county blocking roads and flash flooding shut down even more. So the county roads and bridges division is doing what they can to preplan.

“We know our certain roads that are going to flood so we started looking at those looking at culverts under the roads to make sure they are opened up and aren’t going to be clogged to decrease the chances of that road flooding,” said Matt Hogan who is Anderson County’s Roads & Bridges Director.

Above is a picture of the top county roads in Anderson County that flood during major storms. Officials ask that you be aware and turn around do not drive into any amount of standing water.
