COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - State transportation officials plan to give an update on how much damage a summer of record-setting rains did to roads and bridges in South Carolina.

The update is on Thursday's agenda for a meeting of the state Transportation Commission.

The agency said in July that rains up to that point had damaged 99 roads, costing the state $1.3 million.

At least a dozen places across South Carolina reported the wettest period they have ever had between June and August. Areas in the Upstate received more than 30 inches of rain.
