Relentless rain left large areas of the U.S. southeast under water Saturday and forecasters warned that more heavy downpours could trigger historic flooding in the crucial next 24 hours.Experts say it is a separate weather system from Hurricane Joaquin, a powerful Category Four storm that battered the Bahamas, destroying homes, and was threatening to do much the same to Bermuda.The Bahamas' National Emergency Management Agency was working on damage assessment and reported maximum sustained winds of near 130 miles (210 kilometers) per hour.The Bahamas is home to 385,000 people and visited by far more tourists every year -- about 1.3 million.En route from Florida to Puerto Rico, the 735-foot (224-meter) cargo ship was reported to be caught in the storm near Crooked Island, part of the Bahamas island chain.
