Carroll of Waccamaw Lake Drive pulls boat carrying neighbors Woodward, Woodward and Desjardins in ConwaySouth Carolina grappled with the damage wrought by record rainfall, as the death toll from widespread flooding rose to 14 on Tuesday and residents braced for more evacuations in areas near swollen waterways and dams across the state. "We are still in the mode that the next 36 to 48 hours will be volatile," Governor Nikki Haley told a news conference. The governor said she could not yet estimate the cost of the devastation but noted "the damage is going to be heartbreaking for a lot of people."

(Reuters) - Deep waters may complicate efforts to find out what happened to a U.S. container ship lost at sea during Hurricane Joaquin, a federal safety investigator said on Tuesday, as a search and rescue mission for 32 missing crew stretched into a sixth day. NTSB member Bella Dinh-Zarr said the investigation would be difficult given the ship sank in an unknown location, possibly in 15,000-feet (4,750-meter) deep waters. The U.S. Coast Guard said the body of one presumed crew member was recovered.
