FIRST ALERT: 10:30 a.m. Tropical Storm Michael weather forecast

(WIS) - Tropical Storm Michael is creating issues on major roadways in the Midlands.

According to the SC Highway Patrol Real Time Traffic Information website reporting on Troop 1, there are a number of collisions and downed trees across roadways in the Midlands.

FIRST ALERT: Downed trees on I-26 due to Tropical Storm Michael
  • Turn around, don’t drown (information from the National Weather Service): Each year, more deaths occur due to flooding than from any other thunderstorm related hazard.
  • Stay away from downed power lines – Storms can cause tree limbs and entire trees to break and fall, sometimes taking power lines and even meter boxes down with them. Always assume any downed power line you see is live and stay away.
