A  heavy rainfall event over coastal South Carolina

  • Description:
    "On June 12, 1992, a small area of southeastern South Carolina received an excessive amount of rain. The locations impacted were southeastern Dorchester County, southwestern Charleston County. Moderate to heavy rain remained stationary over the area for an extended period of time, resulting in the issuance of a flood warning for lower Dorchester county. The heaviest precipitation amounts were concentrated in an area from near Summerville to Ladson. The flooding occurred along Eagle and Chandler creeks, which flow through Sweetbrier subdivision, just northwest of Summerville in Dorchester County. This subdivision has a history of flooding during heavy rain events. The event closely resembled a frontal flood event described by Maddox et al. (1979). This paper will compare the synoptic conditions on June 12, 1992, to those associated with a 'frontal flood event', by using the surface, 850 and 500 mb analyses"--Introduction.
