    A northern Virginia search and rescue team is deploying to South Carolina to assist with flooding rescues in the region.

    The Fairfax County Urban Search and Rescue team had six hours to mobilize for their mission Sunday after being activated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as heavy rains bring flooding the region. The team is one of FEMA's 28 elite urban search and rescue teams.

    This is the second deployment for the task force this year. Their most recent mission was an international deployment to Nepal.
