As the death toll rose to 15 from days of devastating rains in South Carolina, residents prepared for the state's swollen rivers to unleash a second round of flooding. Gov. Nikki Haley said there had been nearly 5,000 service calls made since the storms began during the weekend, more than 2,000 just for collisions. But Haley, speaking at a Wednesday news conference, also marvelled at residents' resilience. "You can push South Carolina, but boy does South Carolina push back," she said.
