    One of the victims was identified as 30-year-old Hector Ruiz De La Cruz, of Greenville.

    The remnants of Nestor dumped heavy rain on South Carolina and Georgia.

    The National Weather Service received reports of damage to homes in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, but forecaster Dave Loewenthal said the NWS has not confirmed yet whether a tornado touched down there.
