Update at 4:30 a.m. ET Tuesday: Death Toll Raised To At Least 13
Record rainfall is expected to taper off in much of South Carolina Tuesday, after severe flooding left houses in Columbia and elsewhere with water up to their eaves. But officials say the crisis is not over, and residents should stay away from dangerous roadways.
At least 11 deaths were reported in the South Carolina and two in North Carolina.
In South Carolina, some 40,000 people are without water. In addition, 70 miles of Interstate 95 are closed to traffic.
