COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - More people are being forced from their homes by the threat of flooding in South Carolina.

Authorities are telling people living near a weakened dam in the Columbia area to leave immediately.

They say the dam could breach at any time. Authorities worked overnight to try to stabilize the dam after a sinkhole formed nearby.

Meanwhile, rescue crews are searching for two people who are missing after their pickup truck entered flood water.

Authorities say the driver went around barricades that had been set up to block traffic.
