COLUMBIA, SC -

The Department of Transportation says 99 roads across South Carolina have been damaged from the torrential rains that have fallen in the past three weeks.
    
The DOT estimates damage at $1.3 million, with engineers saying that figure may go up.
    
A department report said 48 of the roads were damaged by pipe failures, 39 had shoulders or pavement washed out and 12 were bridges that either had water running over them or structural damage.
    
Most of the roads have been repaired or reopened.
    
The biggest problem came when a sinkhole developed on Interstate 26 in Berkeley County. That damage has been repaired. The rains also washed out a portion of U.S. Highway 178 in Pickens County near the North Carolina state line. That road is still being repaired.
