Hundreds rescued from floodwaters


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- More door-to-door search operations are planned Monday in South Carolina, where hundreds of people already have been rescued from fast-moving floodwaters.

A powerful rainstorm swamped hundreds of businesses and homes and emergency workers waded into waist-deep water to help people trapped in cars.

Columbia's fire chief says there've been too many rescues to count.

And he says emergency responders will make sure on Monday that they've gotten to everyone who needs help.
