A new webcam has been set up in South Carolina to the monitor a spot that is frequently flooded during periods of heavy rainfall. It was set up by the US Geological Survey.
The spot at Whaley and Main is often flooded because the Rocky Branch is the sole watershed in the area, and much of the surrounding area is covered by impervious surfaces like roads and concrete. So while the Rocky Branch does have a relatively small drainage area of 3 sq. miles, it still in constant danger of overflowing.
