Six of those people died in South Carolina, including a South Carolina Department of Transportation worker overseeing flood operations in Columbia. Two people were killed in traffic incidents in North Carolina.

Rain continues to fall over part of the Carolinas with some of the heaviest rain hitting areas that have already experienced catastrophic flooding.

"We haven't seen this level of rain in the Lowcountry in 1,000 years," South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said on Sunday afternoon.

Interstate 95 was one of hundreds of roads that were closed in South Carolina due to flooding with some roads being completely washed away.

South Carolina officials encouraged residents to avoid travel at all costs due to the severe flooding, especially during the overnight hours when flood waters are even harder to spot.
