Hampton County has received more than 78 inches of rain so far this year, according the county's Emergency Management Director. That's more than double what they've got this time last year.
Last year, the county received more than 30 inches of rain. But, if you look around the county this year, it seems to be the year of the flood. Rain is washing out many roads and causing some major damage. Some homes have flooded, and crops on farms have drowned.
Most of the dirt roads in the county are closed to traffic because they're washed away. DOT crews are out here working to get streets like Walnut Street back open.
"I am 52 years old and I have never seen anything like this," said Susanne Peeples, the Hampton County Emergency Management director. "And I have an aunt who is 90 and she says she's never seen anything like this. We're tired of the rain, but we know what ever the Lord provides on us and puts on use we'll be able to take it and handle it."
Hampton County is using the Code Red Alert System that South Carolina contracted with this year. That system is used to alert residents about which roads are damaged and closed in the county.
