Under water, under stress

As of Monday afternoon, when the worst of the rain stopped, the National Weather Service said rainfall totals in the hardest-hit areas in South Carolina had received more than 2 feet of rain since last week.

The South Carolina town hit by the most rainfall, Mount Pleasant, got almost 27 inches, according to the weather service. A total of about 11 trillion gallons of water had fallen across North Carolina and South Carolina combined. More rain is coming this weekend, forecasters said Thursday.
