The nightmare is far from over as the state awaits more rainfall Saturday, threatening to send swollen rivers gushing through streets choked with debris. The rain is expected to come down heavy Sunday.

It will not be as much as the 15 inches dumped in some spots this week, but it could cause more flooding in areas where water has already receded, forecasters warned.
Emergency management officials on Saturday were trying to reach those who are missing to ensure they are not in danger. The number of missing is expected to decrease as the effort moves forward.
