More than 16 inches of rain fell near Columbia, South Carolina, on Sunday -- the most rain in one spot, on one day, anywhere in the U.S. in 16 years. Days of nonstop rain have killed nine people and closed 550 roads and bridges. Officials warned it could take weeks to reopen everything and Gov. Nikki Haley said it would be a long recovery. William Brangham reports.
