A thunderstorm developed over the headwaters of the Reedy River during the morning July 29th, then remained nearly stationary for several hours, producing rainfall of 4 to 9 inches in approximately 4 hours. This resulted in major flooding in areas from Berea to downtown Greenville. The Reedy River reached 19.2 feet in downtown Greenville, the second highest level on record. Several businesses along the river in downtown incurred major damage, as did numerous homes in the Berea and Sans Souci areas.

At least 30 homes were condemned. Numerous roads and bridges were damaged or washed out. Hundreds of vehicles were damaged or destroyed. Flooding was much less severe on the east side of the metro area, although the Enoree River and several of its tributaries, including Brushy Creek, did overflow their banks.($ 3.5M) Heavy rainfall caused some street flooding in Spartanburg. Flood water entered some businesses ($ 5.0K).
