Camden, Kershaw County deal with flooding, outages, more
Haile Street 2 - Martin Cahn iPhone
High water from a creek running from the Kendall Lake dam through Kendall Park goes under a bridge Sunday on Haile Street next to the Haile Street Grill and KershawHealth. Crews had just finished monitoring the strong water flow, which had washed away two wooden footbridges, including a large one, up against the park side of the bridge. Crews moved the bridges out of the way so the park would not flood further on to Haile or nearby streets. - photo by Martin L. Cahn
A Lugoff man died Sunday after a car in which he was a passenger got swept off a washed-out portion of roadway into Twenty-Five Mile Creek. Kershaw County Coroner David West said McArthur Woods, 56, of Fort Jackson Road, Lugoff, died from accidental drowning. Swift water rescue personnel from Lugoff Fire-Rescue (LF-R) rescued the driver of the vehicle, whom West described as one of Woods’ female relatives.
