Flooding from historic rainfall in South Carolina claimed two more lives on Wednesday, and the threat of further inundation from swollen rivers and vulnerable dams put already ravaged communities on edge. Emergency responders in Richland County, a hard-hit area in the central part of the state, recovered the bodies of two people missing after a truck driven around road barriers was caught in floodwater, said Lieutenant Curtis Wilson. The death toll from the widespread storm that dumped more than 2 feet (60 cm) of rain in parts of South Carolina is at least 17, including people who drowned or were killed in car crashes.

"We never expected the PTSD prevalence to be so high in those women who served in (Vietnam) — especially 40 years after the war ended," said lead author Kathryn Magruder, of the Johnson Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Charleston, South Carolina.
By Susan Eastman JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Reuters) - Safety officials began their investigation on Tuesday into the sinking of a U.S. cargo ship off the Bahamas during Hurricane Joaquin, with deep seas likely to hamper attempts to find the ship and 32 missing crew members.

Maritime experts have called the sinking of the El Faro en route from Jacksonville to San Juan, Puerto Rico, the worst cargo shipping disaster involving a U.S.-flagged vessel in more than 30 years.
