Any Reports Of Damage From CHS,MYR,CAE?

Mon Oct 05, 2015 3:25 am

Major Major flooding is occuring in South Carolina due to the rains from a tropical low. CAE reported 10.7" of rain today and there is more on the way. Any reports from CHS, MYR, or CAE?

Haven't heard of any major problems at CAE. There are a lot of roads out around Columbia and County and State Government offices will be closed in the Columbia and Charleston areas tomorrow. The Columbia area is under a curfew until Monday at 6:00 am if that gives you an idea of how bad things are in general around here.

Thanks for asking. We're hurting pretty badly here. I know several families with flooding.

Some quick internet searching on Monday morning:

Charleston -- no notice on the airport home page. Flight aware and airport website show arrivals and departures on-going although looks like some healthy delays in-bound and 30+ minutes on some of the outbound flights.

Myrtle Beach -- same as Charleston.

Columbia -- no notice on the airport home page. Looks like the earliest flights are all cancelled. Inbound/Outbound all look to have up to one hour delays.

Doesn't seem like a place for optional travel.

The big problem will be getting to and from the airports. Roads are under water and/or washed out. It is bad in much of South Carolina.

Often the biggest problem in these types of events is that employees, like passengers, cannot get to the airport to work so that causes delayed and cancelled flights.

While it isn't the best for discressionary or leisure travel, there is critical travel that may needed to fly in resources to assist with disaster recovery, engineers, inspectors, etc. Keeping the airport open and operating is critical for supplies, people, and commerce.

Airlines will often TDY staff in from the hubs to staff their operations to be able to keep flights going in and out. Example that DL may fly in a few employees from ATL to help run flights today and they will fly back to ATL tonight and/or stay over in a hotel while local employees may be stuck, stranded, or dealing with flooding issues and property loss.
