HORRY COUNTY, S.C. — The Latest on Tropical Storm Florence (all times local):
Authorities say a couple have died in South Carolina after using a generator inside their home during Florence.
Horry County Chief Deputy Coroner Tamara Willard said 63-year-old Mark Carter King and 61-year-old Debra Collins Rion were killed by breathing in carbon monoxide.
Willard said in a statement their bodies were found in a Loris home Saturday afternoon, but they likely died the day before as the heavy rains and winds from former hurricane-turned-Tropical Depression Florence were moving onshore.
