Jasper County, SC (WLTX) - A section of Interstate 95 South in Jasper County is back open after Tropical Depression Bonnie dumped over a half foot of rain on it, forcing its closure.
The South Carolina Department of Transportation says I-95 Southbound at the U.S. 17 exit, which is around mile marker 22, was blocked because of water on the road.
The blockage began around mid Sunday morning
Doppler radar estimates showed more than 10.4 inches of rain fell in that area in just a few hours. Bonnie made landfall at the Isle of Palms near Charleston around 8:30 Sunday morning.
