This was the scene at the Fed Ex Depot.
Getting it there on time was a little more difficult thanks to Mother Nature.
A fed ex truck floated off a Bridge and into a creek and then hit another vehicle.
At least a dozen workers sought refuge on a roof.
Flash flooding also blocked a road leading to the main airport- although the airport did remain open.
Flooding also destroyed several homes and forced about 60 residents to evacuate from a nursing home.
The Red Cross has set up a shelter at the Charleston Civic Center.
