CHARLESTON, S.C. (WSLS 10) - A mix of heavy rain and "King Tides" caused flooding in many parts of Charleston over the weekend.

More than six inches of rain fell at Charleston International Airport Monday, August 31, which is the fifth wettest day on record. More rain fell Monday than the rest of the month combined.

Part of an embankment collapsed off Interstate 526 in Charleston Monday morning and other roads were reported closed. One water rescue was also reported, as a flash flood warning was in effect until 9:00 a.m. Monday for Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester counties.

Charleston's weather forecast shows another two to four inches of rain could fall in the already drenched areas.
