Tropical Storm Florence dumped rain — heavy at times — in York, Chester and Lancaster counties late Friday into Saturday.

Flash flood warnings are in place for York and Lancaster County, among several calls for local residents to remain safe in lingering Florence conditions.

The National Weather Service issued a flood warning for seven counties Sunday morning, including Lancaster. The warning in Lancaster began at 8:28 a.m. and runs through 2:15 p.m. At 1:59 p.m. a warning was issued for York County, through 7:45 p.m. The Lancaster warning was extended through 8 p.m.

A warning means a threat has been observed. A watch, by contrast, means conditions are in place for a given threat.

Lancaster is in flash flood watch conditions until 8 p.m. Sunday.

Chester and York counties are in a wind advisory until 6 p.m. A flash flood watch is in place for both counties through midnight Tuesday. York County has a flood warning in place through 11:54 a.m. Sept. 18.

A Lake Wylie resident reported runoff from a construction site due to heavy rain. The York County Sheriff’s Office posted a photo online of flooding off Heritage Boulevard near Fort Mill.
