Tropical Storm Isaac-fueled deluge in downtown Charleston

Flooding is a part of life in downtown Charleston, where drainage in the low-lying area is poor. On Aug. 28, it was especially bad. We got some thunderstorm activity that was being fueled by Tropical Storm Isaac, which was far to the south. It dropped several inches on the city.
It resulted in a few feet of water in the streets, making travel by foot and car a bit hairy.
Some cars were swamped and rendered useless.
The bigger vehicles created some wave action.
Firefighters still had to respond to calls despite the circumstances.
