The Slow Path of Florence Flooding

Detailed Description

Hurricane Florence hit the Carolina coast on September 14, 2018, but it took much longer for the full impact to emerge.

Conway, South Carolina saw some of its most severe flooding nearly two weeks after the storm hit. This Landsat 8 image from September 26 shows the Waccamaw and Little Pee Dee rivers swollen on either side of the city.
