CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The storm system moving through South Carolina has left property damage, street flooding and record rainfall.

Media outlets report six businesses at a Boiling Springs shopping center in Spartanburg County suffered roof damage when strong storms moved through Tuesday night.

Officials say part of the roof was ripped off causing the ceilings to collapse. The stories were occupied at the time but no one was hurt.

Heavy rains caused street flooding in Charleston and a flood advisory was posted through late Wednesday morning. The National Weather Service said 2 to 3 inches of rain had fallen in the area.

A rainfall record was set in Columbia. The 2.42 inches that fell Tuesday broke the old record of 2.3 inches for June 2 set 112 years ago.
