Expires 7:00 PM EST on November 24, 2014
Statement as of 12:16 PM EST on November 22, 2014
... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Monday evening...
The Flash Flood Watch continues for
* Horse Creek downstream of Langley Pond in Aiken County.
* Through Monday evening
* the Flash Flood Watch for the Langley Pond dam and areas
downstream of the dam continues through Monday evening. The
water level behind the dam continues to be slowly lowered so
that the dam can continue to be further evaluated. However
additional rainfall amounts of around 2 inches are forecast to
occur across the area upstream of the dam from early Sunday
morning and into Sunday night... which will cause additional
water to flow back into Langley Pond once again.
* 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... 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.
