Mon, 11 Aug 2014 19:50:20 GMT — GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX CAROLINA/AP) -- Authorities say a woman is dead and a man she was with is missing after they were swept away by flood waters in Greenville. Greenville County Coroner Parks Evans said rescue crews found the woman Sunday morning, nearly 2 miles downstream in Laurel Creek. Crews are still looking for a man who was also swept away. Evans says it appears the victims were trying to walk away from the flood near Haywood Mall when they disappeared. The National Weather Service says up to 6 inches of rain fell in a few hours. Authorities say two people suffered minor injuries when a bridge was washed out in Greer and flood waters briefly shut down Interstate 85. Flooding was also reported in Anderson, Columbia and Charleston.
