Florence besieges Carolinas with floodwaters

Florence already has proven deadly with its nearly nonstop rain, surging seawater and howling winds, and the threat is days from ending as remnants of the once major hurricane slowly creep inland across the Carolinas.


Some towns have received more than 2 feet (60 meters) of rain from Florence, and forecasters warned that drenching rains with as much as 3.5 feet (1 meter) of water could trigger epic flooding well inland through early next week. At least four people have died, and authorities fear the toll will go higher as the tropical storm crawls westward Saturday across South Carolina.
