The rain just keeps coming in some parts of the Upstate and an early morning storm Saturday produced up to nearly nine inches of rain in the Clemson and Pendleton area. Pendleton Fire Chief Bobby Pruitt said two vehicles were washed off of the road early Saturday, three people that were inside had to be rescued from the water. The rain flooded a creek on Warbranch road in Clemson, bringing the water up three to four feet, washing out the road. Pickens County Emergency Management said four families were temporary displaced until the road is repaired.
