5:31 am
sadly, images like we were -- where the normal. >> we're going to examine the ongoing recovery process i am darcy strickland along with jim gandy who is going to take us through the events of this historic flood. jim, we were first here on that first day when the rain started it makes sense that we are wrapping this up this year together.>> it's interesting because it took an amount of extraordinary circumstances to produce the rainfall that we saw. let me carry you through what was going on leading up to that. we had been concerned about hurricane walking -- walking -- but, what was happening in the
5:32 am
it was right here and it was sinking towards the southeast. and it was stationery across the coast. these would change over the course of 24 to 36 hours. by the time we got to friday, the lowell was tapping moisture from the coast. they were producing heavy rain's. meanwhile, the hurricane is beginning to move away from the bahamas and as it did, it began to factor in. by saturday night, this upper- level low was capping the moisture. and as it continued to move away it was able to tab some of the moisture coming from the hurricane. the rains persisted. this is what the forecast
5:33 am
looking for sunday afternoon, this was amazing. it was not going to hit south carolina, but there is going to o be moisture coming in producing rain, and when all was said and done, this is how much rain fell across south carolina. this is an analysis of the national weather service. you can see here we have heavy rain. but saturday into sunday morning right here, from the child's than area into the columbia area many places saw as much as 15 up to 26 inches of rain. by far, historical by any measure. darcy. >> thank you so much. the irony of us having so much water became the problem. much of the mid-lands could not drink their rain -- water. it prevented it from entering the
5:34 am
it cost $35 million gallon away . they assisted local officials in repairing the dam by using a helicopter to drop 1 ton sandbags into the breach. the plan worked and they were able to supply customers with clean taking water. that's drinking water. -- drinking water. we had people all over resesing people. because if i apartment rescued over 187 people from buildings and cars and the evacuated 464 people from structures because of the floodwaters. michael crow, was on the boulevard as he rescue people from the cars it's one of the images residents will not forget.>> they've just set a line tween the cars. that guy just waited in there,
5:35 am
trapped in their cars for two hours after the water pushed them off of the road. a couple of utility trucks, but what you can see is that they are working right now bringing that letter in closer than we have seen him do before. and, in an attempt official somebody else out, i have talked to three people who have brought people out of their cars after two hours. and helping them wade through all of the horizontal pressure, the man that we told you was trapped earlier his s ughter was here he said/-- he was being fist out. they put the latter we think is his car. she was standing next to me. and it looks like they had t latter there.
5:36 am
looks like they are about to start bringing him down. what we are hearing is that they are still moving and he may be alive. they have that structure ready to bring him over. she says, but they told her that it was him and he was still moving. they got him out of the car at after 3 1/2 hours of being trapped a terrifying situation they were just trying to get to church to work, and they now have to deal with all of this. >> and just down the road and forth acres it water rushed into home on kilbourne roads chris hopper spoke with one of the victims that day. is a pretty dramatic they're putting this woman on a stretcher because she needs assistance in that shows you how high the water levels are they have to get on the roof of a two-story home to get this woman from inside.
5:37 am
>> the pores and everything were flooded. >> how bad? >> it is about, let me see. >> the water at the top of the fence line which is pretty high, we got everything propopd up on our beds in the brought -- the dogs are propped up. >> were you worried wouldn't be able to get out quick >> yes, we were picked >> my backyard is flooded. >> and your kids are safe? >> yes. thank god for that. >> nobody but the dogs but they're going back. >> who rescued you? >> know these guys we got up and they said they were hungry and my floors were flooded. >> we are glad that you are safe. >> the amount of damage cannot even be explained in words you have to see the pictures to understand lee county suffered an enormous amount of damage
5:38 am
let me give you an idea of how high this dam was. this is the height of it just about the eye level or probably about the top of my head and i can see the blacktop on both sides, and you can see what you get a wider shot of what happened that the water it came up so high i talked to the sheriff, it came up so high that it was rushing over the road. you can see, that how low the water is because it has really just spread i mean it's gone. >> this is definitely the most stunning image. this road is washed away the sand the dirt, it is all dried up and, it's'seally just a top level. this is the asphalt. this was the centerline of eddie watkins road here in lee county. you can see, where the asphalt has dropped off and it's, it is
5:39 am
>> i wanted to see what the lake looks like. remember, it has been draining since monday morning. that is when we heard that the dam broke you can see, that there is barely any water about 20 minutes ago site beautiful sunset off that water and it is surreal, this is probably the last sunset reflection that you will see a very long time. again, this time to draining since e nday. there isn't much water left, of the water has really just flown through, when it broke. so, which is headed straight through the woods here. and taking a long sediment. huge rocks huge concrete slabs broken in half it's unbelievable to think that the ter was so powerful l re.
5:40 am
this is really all that is left. the damage is so bad, that the sheriff says the road might not be able to be replaced. as for the pond in the dam, who knows if it will be replaced. the damage is so expensive. you have seen this a couple of times, and for you to see this on tv, it is not as incredible unless you are here. it is probably unbelievable to see at home. still ahead, we have seen
5:41 am
the water system. during the flood many were saying this is 1000 year flood that i couldn't get anyone to explain exactly how they arrived at that. i went to our partners, they have statisticians on staff and

>> welcome to our yurt in review for 2015 and sports. what a really dear it has been. as a senior right now who would have thought that once it is ranked number one in football. >> no one saw a lot of the things that happened coming year. everything kind of seemed normal. but we have some shakeups. let's start in the spring. obviously that's where he made some major changes on his staff. i returned to the college ranks after 13 year stint.
5:57 am
there was also a change under center. we didn't know who the starting cornerback was. there was a little bit of concern going into the fall as we had into the off-season he were confident that this unit would produce. we are so tight is the one that is betttt than the rest. we didn't change one or two games in 13 last year. or always tried to find out who the best player is. if they're pretty close in ability. the new state more than one. we still have a lot of time here were all great friends and great competitors. we just try to make the best of what we could.
5:58 am
there is a big topic that was on the docket how much longer he would be on the sidelines. he was ready for the question and he have an answer that he thought would silence the doubters. before he quickly reversed course and said he was back on the fortified your plan. >> there is a lot of coaches out there that we are all a similar age. i think there's two people running for president. hillary and trump are both within a year of me. it is just a number that we all had on our birth certificate and so forth. if your ability to think and move around and do what's necessary then you're not too old. maybe i've done it long enough. i've been fortunate to win it so much. but i have a wonderful
5:59 am
i work for the best people. it's not as stressful as people think. that answer did not satisfy , one list. -- did not satisfy a columnist here in in response to the article they called a news conference he actually went off on a range. they cleared up once and for all. as most of you know, i am a big leaguer he said very simply is a simple truth that the greater your compass making your victories greater opposition your enemies well throw in your path. expect and don't become a victim of it. the enemies will talk bad about us. we finally won an oscar games. we finally won enough that
6:00 am
that my age has something to do with it. our team doctor told me that about about 85-year-old guy. run the show. i plan on coaching a long time. pace. he would pop over for a few minutes he even went as far as pulling out a stand up route your eye was thinking everybody is undefeated at this time everything is going great. i thought i would give you guys the opposite of what the coach this time of year says.
6:01 am
sorry fact is today. the quarter backs can't hit the broadside of a barn. certainly it was a different coach. it seemed very confident going into the season. and you talk to him there. i'm confident in what we have here he did give us too many details. he have that air about him. after they go through the preseason they saw them and the regular season. broke loose. they knocked off 17-13. wasn't pretty but was a win. build on.
6:02 am
that's probably what we need to worry about. we have to a limiting some careless counties and probably try to look like a pretty good team were to go up there on saturday night. a lot of our players have never played here. it will be a wonderful experience playing in front of our crowd. the wind would be a followed by a four-point loss. they were desperate. they hope they can find one. he would get the start at cornerback he tossed a pair of third-ququter touchdowns leading the gamecocks to a 31-14 victory. in the last wind at the time all
6:03 am
i don't know how much more spirited it was. we all know he was going to be the quarterback. we have some direction and hope. still trying to get him to throw a little bit better practice. he threw better in a game than he have been in practice. the next two games would both be on the road. at two in four record. that is when he held his final
6:04 am
he was not only at usc but at florida. he essentially fired himself. i always get asked how much loer are you going to coach. as long as we keep winning it is both games like this pretty good. i have several more years. if it starts going south and i need to get out. you can't keep a hedge coat each as long as i had headed in the wrong direction. i'm responsible and i'm the head coach. we have to get out of the way and let someone else have a go at it. with stepping aside. they needed a heavy coach. he tapped him on the shoulder and said it was his show. elliott received the opportunity of a lifetime. it was his program for at least
6:05 am
regular season. he have to work fast to put his stamp on it. i'm extremely excited about the opportunity that we have here is what i think the coach six years ago he hired me into the cheats. and then brought me here. we've made some great memories. i just want to say thank you for all you've done we are moving forward. we one goal in mind. this week. a win today and win tomorrow. with a lot of great players and support staff. it is not and shambles of some might say. it would great group of
6:06 am
i'm not sure at this point that the change is what they needed. i'm in a take my opportunity that we had as a coach and we will look forward and we will do everything we can to make the university of south carolina product is football program. with the resignation still in the mind to contest so i'm making his debut. he led the gamecocks with the former. and for elliott was a day that he will never forget. i can certainly tell you that. it's just such a great amount of
6:07 am
carolina. in the final five games a trademark was the fact that this team was in the game until the very end. we were highlighted by some long odds going in. it was after the loss of the florida gators that there was a sense of the air be left out here perhaps the feeling of disappointment. it was 25 years after his accident with let them turn up that of usc. they rush for hundred 74 yards. they were left with a stunning
6:08 am
certainly disappointed and efforts. from penalties it was a total disappointment. we just spoke with the football team. really briefly right after this game. there was a lot of disappointed faces in there. we started this contest is to look at a player in the team and see if they are focused and ready to play. and if it was all there. the coach, said told us they out coached us and outplayed us. this is probably the lowest. after that stunning loss it was
6:09 am
been a more only to have a clemson separate themselves. they did more than keep it close. clinton would answer. it would be of the last game versus john elliott. the players fight there's a lot of great men in that room. into the win loss record probably doesn't. the athletic director got a little bit of a head start in
6:10 am
they have an up and down. unlike a certain florida he would have total court troll over who he has working for him. they made him a better coach and if he has a history will be your see who benefits in the sunshine state. i do have a competitive edge about me. i do coach with a lot of energy on the field and i want to players to play with relentless effort. i do know that your players generally take the personality of the coach. honestly they want to be a little bit leery there. sometimes the solid hires a workout better.
6:11 am
will see what happens in 2016. welcome back. our special year in review. what about the clemson tigers. they have a pretty good here. they bring in the new year with a big win. let's show you how it went down with the tigers. they have to struggle a bit. and then in the rain 24-22. the first immediate between the tigers. they saw them and on for the win.
6:12 am
they were moved to third in the country. the championship there. put the state would jump out to an early leak. they were ranked number one in the country. attackers would come out on top. they keep their national tv chip hopes alive. and then from there they would not a staircase and wake forest before heading to columbia. as we showed you earlier in the show. the process they maintain bragging rights. for the second year in a row. we played for out of our last six on the road. burgundy plank 10 in a row. four of the last six. our team is just to continue to find ways to win. that's the bottom line. we got the result that we came here for. i'm proud of our team for that.
6:13 am
it is just a blessing to be a part of. what the regular season and the books they had one more game to play before they could rest their tired bodies. they are marking that 15 acc championship and giving him a single-season record of 13-point. i know how hard it is to do it. they will appreciate that when they grow older and wiser. it's so hard to do. the other good 13 and zero are so incredibly slim especially when you played three top 10 teams along the way. these guys found a way to get it
6:14 am
127 division i teams. they're the last team out there. we have had to earn it. i think that a 16 in a row for us. the 15th title one of the things that we talked about old times you have to earn it. and they have earned their way to the college football playoffs. that is going to be a good one
6:15 am
we're talking back here i was making. we are talking hoops. the guys have a good year. a great season. the women's program continues to
6:16 am
the first sec championship you may have been the gold standard. carolina has made it clear that they are now the team to beat. it's the first win over tennessee and columbia since 1980. there would be one more. it was carolina with an even more dominating performance. for the first time in the program's history and they were cutting down a bit nuts at the conference interments. they would defeat the 80 to 74. they advanced to the ncaa final four.
6:17 am
they deserve to be in the array or air. it would rally from a 12-point second-half deficit. with them clinging to a one-point lead. they could not convert. the irish would escape with a 65-66 win. it included the school record and it would come to an end. we can still take that tough road were not the same south carolina that we were in the past. we are building something great. the experience is just being here. there's a lot of teams that wish they could be in our position. we gave it our all. we never let down.
6:18 am
could have just called it what -- call it quits. it has been picked to win it all again. time will tell. they finished with a 17 and 16 record. they went through stretch. it's the way they are not throwing in the towel. it's very impressive in the preseason. we will see how it works out once the sec starts. coming up next.
