    Another couple of feet and it goes over that railway bridge. Look at all that driftwood lodges against it. That is insane.

    My brother, the structural engineer, made a very good observation with regards to floodwaters and bridges.

    Engineers generally do not design bridges to take the lateral stresses from a river that reaches the deck of a bridge. All of those bridges will have to be examined to ensure that the deck has not moved off it's supports.

    Yes - I am sure all these bridges will need to be looked at. I saw some footage of idiots walking around on that railroad bridge. With all that water pushing up against it, I would not be surprised if the whole thing breaks apart and washes away. including the people on it.

    Most of downtown Georgetown is expected to be under 5-10' of water.

    Still lots of bad flooding happening in SC & NC.

    Looks like Georgetown avoided disaster.

    Check out the flood barrier at the property at the beginning of this vid and at the 2:00 mark. It's totally amazing that there's no water encroachment.
