Looking ahead: Bright sunshine finally returns Tuesday and should be with us for most of the week. The next chance for rain comes in late Friday, but will not bring any heavy rain.

Flooding continues to be a major issue in South Carolina and the Highway Patrol released the following warning about road conditions:

"The Highway Patrol is continuing to see motorists attempt to travel on the roadways despite warnings. The integrity of the roadways has been compromised resulting in bridge collapses and roads being washed out. Currently, SCHP is assisting local first responders with rescue operations and continues to be inundated with calls for assistance. Trees and power lines are blocking the roads in many areas. Do NOT attempt to be on the roads – even locally. Stay inside."

Emergency officials opened a new phone line for anyone to call and ask questions about flooding. You can reach the center at 1-866-246-0133.

Update on Hurricane Joaquin:

  • The island of Bermuda is preparing for an encounter with Hurricane Joaquin.
  • People on the British island territory on Sunday boarded up windows and stocked up on supplies as the storm moved toward the island as a Category 3 hurricane. Ferries and bus service were suspended, shelters were expected to open and emergency service agencies were on alert.
  • The Bermuda Weather Service reports that the island should start to feel tropical storm-force winds later Sunday. The center of Joaquin is expected to pass about 60 miles from the island on Monday.
