      Floods, washed out roads in soggy South Carolina

      A summer of rain has left its mark on South Carolina, undermining dozens of roads, flooding neighborhoods from the mountains to the coast and ruining the South Carolina Botanical Gardens. It may not be over. With soil moisture at near-record levels, emergency officials worry that if a decaying tropical storm moves over the state and brings more torrential rains, the results could be disastrous. A volunteer reported to the National Weather Service that parts of Pickens County have received more than 60 inches of rain already in 2013 over the average yearly total. Nearly half of the state's 46 counties have seen at least 40 inches of rain so far. Here are the heaviest rainfall totals reported in each South Carolina county so far in 2013 by volunteers in the National Weather Service's Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network program. Chester, Chesterfield, Dillon, Fairfield, Lee and Marion counties had incomplete data.
