LAKE WYLIE, S.C. (AP) — York County deputies are recommending that boaters stay off of Lake Wylie for a few days as huge piles of debris wash into the lake from upstream flooding in North Carolina.
Some boaters told The Herald of Rock Hill that it looked like entire yards had washed downstream with all the grass, logs and other debris.
York County Sheriff’s Sgt. Brent Mabry says he has never seen so much debris in the water in his 10 years with the county’s lake patrol.
Officials in Rock Hill closed a park on the Catawba River because of flooding.
Up to a foot of rain fell in several hours upstream over the weekend near Hickory, N.C., causing major flooding that is coming downstream on the Catawba.
