Flash Flood Watch
Expires 3:00 PM EST on November 30, 2014
Statement as of 12:59 PM EST on November 28, 2014
... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Sunday afternoon...
The Flash Flood Watch continues for
* Horse Creek downstream of Langley Pond in Aiken County
* through Sunday afternoon.
* The Flash Flood Watch for the Langley Pond dam and areas
downstream of the dam continues through at least Sunday on the
advice of the Aiken County emergency management. Emergency
management and engineers at the dam report that pumps are on
site to help lower the water level behind the dam. However even
with the pumps... the water levels behind the dam have risen
due to the recent rainfall. Structural concerns continue.
* Areas downstream of the dam include the towns of Langley and
Bath near Horse Creek. State Road 254... Langley dam Road and
State Road 67... Anthony drive... could be impacted where they
cross Horse Creek. Other areas that could be affected would be
Camp Kiwanis Lane and far four Lane.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop downstream
of the dam that could lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a
very dangerous situation.
Residents downstream of the dam should be prepared to take action
should a Flash Flood Warning be issued.
Dam safety experts and engineers... along with state and local
emergency services... continue to monitor the dam and will issue
public statements as conditions warrant. Plan now so you will
know what to do in an emergency. Keep informed by listening to
local radio and television for statements and possible warnings.
Follow the advice of public safety officials.
