(CHARLESTON, S.C.) — More deaths have been reported from the massive flooding in South Carolina.

At a press conference on Saturday, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley announced that the death toll had risen to 19 in the state.

She urged residents to stay at home since flash flood watches had been issued Saturday morning, saying it was “a good day to stay in and watch football and not get out on the roads.”

Portions of the Carolinas could see 1 to 2 inches of rain within the next 24 hours, and it may cause issues for already-damaged roads.

The governor said the state could see a slow decline of the larger rivers, but possibly some flooding in small creeks.
