23 Widespread inundation flooding occurs. Many homes will be flooded out along the river in Abbeville. The record crest was 23.1 feet on July 11...1994.
20 Major flooding continues. When the river rises to 20 feet...several farm houses become isolated.
18 Major flooding begins. Homes begin to flood on the west side of the river in Abbeville just downstream from the boat ramp and park. Residents will need to be evacuated by boat if not already out.
16 Flooding of farm lands...timberlands...and access roads will occur.
14 Moderate flooding begins. Roads to homes along the west side of the river in Abbeville become inaccessible.
13 Minor flooding of lowlands adjacent to the river continue to expand into the flood plain. Flooding of the nearby park and parking lot at the Abbeville boat ramp also expands.
12 Flood Stage is reached. Minor flooding of lowlands adjacent to the river begins. The water level reaches the top of the Abbeville boat ramp and also begins to flood the nearby park.
