the home. the feds don't say what, if any work the organization did on behalf of student, but they did say miller continued to commit fraud in 2013, serving as campaign treasurer for virginia senate minority leader dick saslaw of fairfax. they say she wrote 73 fraudulent checks from the campaign without the senator's knowledge to bank accounts she controlled including to a shell company, the feds say called the traily company. the i-team had been investigating miller's campaign filings and saw the campaign books listing those expenses. no company from senator saslaw or the defense attorney. she's expected to appear in court and that's federal court in alexandria, virginia. >> she's in trouble. >> facing a felony. it started with a tip to the i-team, we invite you to visit our nbc washington app and click on investigations. >> now to the historic flooding in the carolinas. the rain is starting to let up down there, but the death toll
is rising. tonight, 11 people are known dead. nine in south carolina and two in north carolina, and tebs of thousands of people are without power or clean drinking water tonight. all of this comes amid new evacuations. rescuers are going door to door to search for people trapped in their homes and the national guard has deployed 1300 troops in what's being called a 1,000-year rain, vent and nbc's jay gray is in columbia, south carolina with the latest there, jay? >> hi there, doreen and the rain has stopped and the problems have not. they are still fighting floodwaters and then communities like this one that are dealing with the problems those floodwaters left behind. south carolina is still under water right now historic flooding that's tossed aside cars and torn away roads,
bridges and dams and swallowed communities from the coasts to the midlands. >> we are continuing rescue and evacuation operations throughout the state. in the columbia area alone from the weekend through today there have been more than 150 swift water rescues and first responders expect that number to climb. the national guard has moved in to help with the ongoing effort in the flood zone, focusing their attention in the columbia area where the water has had an effect on just about everyone and everything. >> our infrastructure is compromised. one of the most severe issues, water. not the flood levels that continue to climb, but the public water system that's been compromised, leaving thousands without usable water. the situation so dire, fire teams continue to pump tens of thousands of gallons of water into area hospitals. >> we will continue to provide the water to the hospitals as long as we can sustain it and we just don't know how long we can sustain that. >> reporter: fire fighters and
water system like most everyone here pushed to their limits, but the struggle for many is still far from over. >> when it finally does stop raining and the floods recede then we have to deal with the incredib incredible amounts of property damage that i'm sure will total into the billions. we have a lot of work to do, but we're doing it together. >> the same way that so many to this point have survived this historic storm. and back live now, you can see this roadway ripped apart by floodwaters after a dam gave way. the scenes like this are playing out across the carol kales right now and in communities like this. what we've seen a lot is neighbors helping neighbors, doreen. that effort will be put on hold as we resume dusk to dawn curfew for the second night in a row here. >> hard to do anything after the sun goes down. jay, you're our man on the scene on all natural disasters. how does this compare to the others. >> reporter: it is overwhelming
because it is so widespread here. we are talking about almost the entire state that is dealing with the flooding here and we're talking about thousands of families that have been pushed from their homes and many of them only with the clothes on their backs and losing everything they have to leave behind. it is overwhelming and one of the worst i've seen. >> jay gray reporting from columbia, south carolina, thank you. >> a search and rescue team is in south carolina trying to help with flood rescues and virginia task force one arrived in manning today and that's between charleston and columbia. >> that team consists of 85 people and four dogs and they took 59,000 pounds of equipment with them. coming up at 6:30, a closer look at the critical role this team will play in the recovery. >> crews are scouring the atlantic ocean near the bahamas and they're trying to find any survivors from a missing cargo ship. the coast guard believes that the ship called the el faro sank after it was caught in hurricane joaquin last week. 33 people, most of them

rain and this is a tropical moisture feed coming through charleston and columbia, south carolina and it just sits there for two days and this was forecast and the national weather service put out forecasts of upward of 20 to 25 inches and that's exactly what they got here. here it is today and this was early this morning and it was still coming down heavily into portions of north carolina. now starting to relax a little bit as far as the rain is concerned and still seeing shower activity and the heaviest rain is now gone, but look at that moisture plume coming into charleston and columbia. how much rain did they see there. this is just some of the totals and this is very close to columbia and 26.88 inches and gill's creek around 20.28. we've already seen how much damage around the gill's creek area that we have seen. as far as our weather is concerned, we have something different moving in and something we haven't seen in a while. i'll get to that forecast in a minute. new at the live desk, we are hearing from passengers who help

andre said it happened when a patient got out of the hospital without being discharged. he was spotted at the rehabilitation help across the street and they were walking him back when things got physical. in the way they were met by two of our security officers and an interaction occurred which the patient was injured. he was resuscitated there at the scene by his nurse. >> dr. andre admits most patients have the right to discharge themselves, but he wouldn't explain why this particular patient was restrained and how he ended up dying two days later. while the case was immediately given to mpd to investigate, he says they hesitated for days since going public. >> the family made it very clear to us that their desire was to keep this private. >> what isn't private is that the actions of two hospital employees are now under scrutiny and dr. andre says there could be more.
>> the security officers from the hospital center were put on administrative leave, and we began and are continuing our own investigation. >> reporter: now the name of this patient has not yet been released. the hospital says the official cause of death will come from the medical examiner's office once that autopsy is complete. jim? >> thanks, meagan. it could be a few days, maybe thursday, before opening statements are made in the charles severance murder trial. lawyers today were questioning 100 potential jurors telling them about the hardship of what could be a six-week trial. severance has often interrupted the judge in earlier hearings, but today he sat quietly in the courtroom. severance is charged with killing three well-known alexandria residents over a 10-year span. next, new fallout after a charity hospital in afghanistan is bombed in an apparent u.s.

to get ahead, but it's tough. >> it's getting very expensive to make ends meet and it's never enough. >> it's lower and moderate income citizens that could put hundreds of thousands of dollars in their pockets next year. and the good news for working men and women is that we're continuing to reduce the income tax burden for them. >> growing tax revenues means the city can cut tax rates and not just a little for those earning 25,000 to 50,000, the tax cut is 34% this year and 17% for those earning up to 75,000. overall it's a tax cut of 8% for all taxpayers except the most wealthy who will pay slightly more. the district, unfortunately, continues to have this reputation which dates back a couple of decades and we have the highest tax jurisdiction and that's not true. >> nicky mackenzie teaches financial literacy for the planning organization and she knows saving is tough.

experiences and diverse skill sets. the list of possible candidates. cal ripken as jim vance mentioned. his name jumps out at you. he's in the conversation, of course, but he might not have the coaching experience that the gm is seeking. bud black managed the padres for eight and a half years and only two were winning seasons. former nats third base coach, a davey johnson disciple who went on to manage the astros currently on the braves. and randy knorr. those are just a few of the names. the list is long and rizzo says it's going to be a pain staking search. meantime, sunnier skies at redskins park. jason pugh has a cloudy forecast for jordan reed. >> hey, carol, it's been four games for the redskins and this game has yet to have the offensive schedule available for
the full game. scombrord jordan reed suffered a concussion in the game with the philadelphia eagles. especially after the loss of receiver deshawn jackson. reed left in the fourth quarter and we heard from jay gruden that he injured his mcl and ankle. we are a quarter of the way through the nfl season and a lot of people had different expectations for this redskins team. i asked head coach jay gruden how would he judge this group after the first quarter of play. >> i like the way that the guys are giving great effort and it will pay dividends and being 2-2, it's not 4 and 0 and we're happy about that. bigger than any football game, today, some very special guests at redskins park and 31 women in the middle of their cancer treatment getting pampered by some of their favorite redskins players and this part of the eighth annual all-star survivors
breast cancer celebration and spearheaded by cancer survivor tania snyder and wife of redskins owner dan snyder. the players, they get pumped up, too. >> and these ladies are going through a lot and i can never imagine. we're available for their favorite players and their favorite teams and i think it means the world to them and just a wonderful event put on the organization, and tomorrow the players will have off and they'll be back on the practice field getting ready for the matchup against the atlanta falcons. from ashburn, i'm jason pugh, news 4 sports. they have a lot of work to do because undefeated atlanta is up next and kyle shanahan's boys and they're hungry and they can score a lot of points. >> yeah, but they can also be beaten, too.
