Motorists were cautioned Thursday afternoon, July 11, as the National Weather Service in Columbia issued an urban and small stream flood advisory for Lancaster County.

The advisory is in effect for the whole county until 6:15 p.m., according to a NWS release sent Thursday at 5:18 p.m. Radar was showing slow-moving thunderstorms rolling through the county and producing a significant amount of rain. 

Law enforcement and emergency responders were seen braving the deluge of rain Thursday afternoon. Meteorologists expect the storm will result in the flooding of streets and other low-lying areas.

The National Weather Service advises motorists not to drive their vehicles into areas where water covers the road.
