(Reuters) - Rescuers searched early Wednesday for two people missing in floodwaters in South Carolina, while authorities urged residents in hundreds of homes to seek higher ground as a dam threatened to fail. Emergency responders in Richland County said two people were unaccounted for after a truck they were in drove around road barriers and became submerged in floodwaters resulting from the historic rainfall in the state. The rainstorm was blamed for at least 15 deaths in South Carolina, including nine people who drowned and six who were killed in weather-related car crashes.

Cuba resumes U.S. chicken imports after bird flu halt: traders
By Marc Frank HAVANA (Reuters) - Cuba has purchased at least 30 million pounds (13 million kg) of U.S. chicken for delivery in October, traders told Reuters, ending a two-month suspension that Cuba attributed to a bird flu epidemic affecting the U.S. poultry industry. A letter emailed in June to traders from Alimport, the Communist-run country's food importer, said Cuba would not accept bids for delivery of chicken in August and September, "taking into account the animal health situation." Alimport has not publicly commented on the issue and did not immediately respond to requests from Reuters to confirm the lifting of the ban. Cuba is allowed to purchase U.S. agricultural goods for cash under a 2000 exception to the trade embargo.
