CHESTER COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Some roads in Chesterfield and Kershaw Counties were completely impassable Monday morning due to flooding of the Lynches River.

SC Hwy 903 (McBee Hwy) at the Chesterfield/Kershaw County line has since been reopened by SCDOT, according to Chris Jones with Buffalo-Mt. Pisgah Fire Department. Water levels have lowered on SC Hwy 903 from SC Hwy 151 in Chesterfield County to SC HWY 346 (Raley's Mill Rd) in Kershaw County.

However, John Munn Road at Munn Road remains closed at this time.

Jones said that SC HWY 903 at the Kershaw/ Chesterfield line was impassable around 4 a.m. with at least one and a half foot of water near John Munn Rd. after the Lynches River spilled over its banks and flooded the roadway.

A mandatory curfew has been issued for residents in Chesterfield County as what is left of Florence continues to pound the area with heavy rains causing flooding.

According to our sister station WBTV, the order was issued for Chesterfield County residents from 11 a.m. Sunday to 7 a.m. Monday due to dangerous flooding.

Residents in the area are told to call 911 if they need assistance.
