Heavy rain in areas to the north has led to swollen waterways in York County, washing out a bridge near Sharon and dumping a large amount of debris in Lake Wylie.
Excess water on the Catawba River also prompted Rock Hill officials to close River Park on Monday after trails, picnic areas and a kayak launch point were flooded overnight.
Not far from the flooded park, the Rock Hill Rescue Squad pulled five people from the Catawba River late Sunday night after a water release to control flooding on Lake Wylie caused the river’s waters to rise.
