Authorities say the death toll from Hurricane Matthew in South Carolina is now at three people.

Two people died in Florence County. Sheriff Kenney Boone said in a news release that divers Sunday recovered the body of a man who drove his car into the water at a washed out bridge.

Authorities say the body of a second man in Florence County was found in a vehicle swept off a different bridge.

The coroner has not released the name of either victim.

The third storm death happened in Richland County. The coroner says 66-year-old David Outlaw drowned at a Columbia nursing facility when he got pinned under his electric wheelchair in water after the heavy rains.
