By Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - Torrential rainfall that South Carolina's governor called a once-in-a-millennium downpour triggered flooding in the southeastern U.S. state on Sunday, causing at least eight deaths in the Carolinas. The storm had dumped more than 18 inches (45 cm) of rain in parts of central South Carolina by early Sunday. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley said parts of the state were hit with rainfall that would be expected to occur once in 1,000 years, with the Congaree River running at its highest level since 1936.
