COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Rain finally ended in Georgia and South Carolina on Saturday, but not before downpours set records, spilled sewage and flooded some streets. The National Weather Service reports 4.16 inches of rain fell at Columbia Metro Airport on Friday. That not only shattered the previous rainfall record for Dec. 13 of 1.99 inches set in 1953, but became the wettest December day ever recorded in Columbia. Over 48 hours ending Saturday morning, almost 6 inches of rain fell at Daniel Field airport in Augusta, Georgia. A weather observer in Edgefield County, South Carolina, reported 7.04 inches.
