After days of deluges, residents of the Carolinas are sizing up what the floods have done to their states.
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 and South Carolina combined. More rain is coming this weekend, forecasters said Thursday.
The amount of water that fell in South Carolina was enough for 1.2 million gallons for every person in the state, according to meteorologist Ryan Maue of WeatherBELL.
And, as meteorologist Brad Panovich of NBC affiliate WCNC in Charlotte noted, the amount of rain that fell in South Carolina was enough to give everyone in North Carolina ... and California ... a filled, Olympic-sized swimming pool.
Still, meteorologist Jan Null of Golden Gate Weather Services said the amount wouldn't be nearly enough to make up for California's rain deficit.
The death toll in South Carolina from the floods was 17 and two in North Carolina as of Thursday.
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley listed some other numbers in a few separate press conferences over the last few days:
"It appears to be an absolute certainty that the final damage bill is going to be above $1 billion, but until the waters fully recede and homeowners and businesses can take a complete assessment of the damage, we won't know for sure," said Steve Bowen, a meteorologist for Aon Benfield.
"Things are getting better in the Midlands [region of the state]," Haley told reporters Wednesday night. "Things are about to get worse on the coast."
