Saluda River on the rise, could go higher with rain

Jul 26, 2011 4:18:00 PM - thestate.com
If you were considering heading out to the Saluda River in the Columbia area this afternoon, here are two warnings:

SCE&G announced it plans to release water from the Lake Murray dam, sending the Saluda River to dangerous levels. At 4 p.m., water was flowing from the dam at nearly 9,000 cubic feet per second. Many days in recent weeks, the water flowed in the river below 600 cubic feet per second. Swimming and tubing in the river are extremely dangerous at 9,000 cfs.

The high river level also could get a boost from rain. The National Weather Service warned that showers and thunderstorms are expected to linger in the Midlands the rest of the afternoon, with occasional heavy downpours.
