June 1973

A weak subtropical low pressure system influenced the weather across South Carolina from the 8th through the 12th. The system dissipated as it moved slowly north. Excessive rains over portions of southern and central South Carolina caused major flooding of roads. On the 11th, seventy percent of the roads in the Charleston area were flooded. A new flood record was established on the Black River at Kingstree. Major flooding occurred on the Black River from Kingstree to the coast and along the Edisto River.
