COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina lottery players are urged to check those tickets hiding in their wallets or purses because less than a week remains to cash in a Mega Millions ticket worth $10,000. The ticket was purchased for the March 27 drawing at a Kangaroo Express store in Gaffney. It expires Sunday. Players have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prizes. The numbers drawn were: 7, 25, 43, 56, 59 and Megaball 13.

CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - Residents and officials in Conway, South Carolina, worry that homes will flood because the state wants to instead save the main highway into Myrtle Beach.

So the state is building a higher wall in its last stand on U.S. Highway 501.

CHERAW, S.C. (AP) - As South Carolina continues its wait to see how the rains of Florence will impact the state's low-lying communities, Gov. Henry McMaster's flight over soggy parts of the state Monday turned from an observation trip to a rescue mission when he spotted two people stranded atop a flooded vehicle.
