2nd body found in Greenville County floods

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Authorities have found the body of a second person swept away by flash flood waters over the weekend in Greenville County.

Coroner Parks Evans told local media outlets that divers recovered the body of 39-year-old Timothy Sullivan from a pond at around 2:40 p.m. Monday.

Officials say Sullivan had been with 36-year-old Kimberly Michelle Jackson when their vehicle stalled in a flooded area Saturday night near Haywood Mall.

Jackson's body was found Sunday morning in a drainage pipe in a wooded area.

The National Weather Service says a thunderstorm formed over Greenville and the surrounding areas around 10 p.m. Saturday and dumped 5 to 6 inches of rain in some areas.
