It’s part of living in the Lowcountry.  When the high tide and the heavy rain coincide – you get flooding.  Lots of it.  Now don’t sound alarmed – I am not talking Hurricane Hugo level floods.  I’m just saying there are a few streets you and your car need to avoid in Downtown Charleston unless you are wearing waders or happen to own a Monster Truck.  It’s part of the whole adventure! So here’s a collaborative map, created by The Digitel, and added to by Charlestonians near and wide.  I recommend bookmarking this, so if you are ever caught in a storm and are Downtown and need to get out, you’ll know how to find your way.
