SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The South Carolina side of the Savannah River has reached 18.37 feet as of Thursday afternoon. This is the highest it has been since 1993.

So far, the river has affected 15 homes and 14 houses have been evacuated in the Clyo section of Jasper County. 

Officials are encouraging people to evacuate, but it's not mandatory. They're afraid that the river will get higher because of the water coming from Lake Hartwell from Anderson County, which has overflowed. All of it is flowing toward Savannah.
