By Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - Persistent torrential rainfall caused dangerous flooding in South Carolina's main cities on Sunday and prompted hundreds of rescues through shoulder-deep waters across the southeastern U.S. state. No deaths had been reported, although five traffic fatalities in North and South Carolina were blamed on a weather system that dropped more than 18 inches (45 cm) of rain in one part of South Carolina. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley said parts of the state were hit with rainfall that would be expected to occur once in a thousand years, with the Congaree River running at its highest level since 1936.
