South Carolina is still picking up the pieces after last weekend’s heavy rains and flooding. State officials set up two disaster recovery centers in the Columbia area. And Amtrak said Saturday all train service along the East Coast is now operating again.
Last weekend, more than a foot of rain fell across a wide area of the state, raising rivers over banks, and causing major flooding that forced evacuations. As the week went by, floodwaters progressed downstream on the state’s major waterways, threatening coastal cities with more flooding.
