Heavy Rain Dumps On Carolinas, Virginia

Monday, May 20, 2013

AccuWeather.com reports showers and thunderstorms will bring heavy rain to portions of the mid-Atlantic and Southeast.

These storms will spread across much of the East Coast on Monday, becoming most prevalent in the afternoon.

Thunderstorms will extend from Massachusetts to Florida on Monday afternoon and into the evening. The storms are not expected to be severe; however, they could contain locally strong wind gusts.

Additionally, the storms over southern Virginia and the Carolinas will be slow-moving, just as these storms were over Georgia on Sunday.

This will allow heavy rain to fall over the same area for some time, potentially creating areas of localized flooding.

A few larger cities that could experience this flooding include Danville and Petersburg, Va.; Raleigh, Greensboro and Charlotte, N.C.; and Florence and Columbia, S.C.

Rainfall rates could be as much as one inch of rain per hour in this area.

Urban and poor drainage areas will be the most at risk for flooding, including over roadways. Caution should be used through Monday afternoon and into early Tuesday morning.

When The City Was Silent - And Response

I don't know how to say this without getting my head handed back to me on a platter as is often the usual case.

So I'll just bite and say it: I honestly don't see anything expressed by the NSM that hasn't been said locally on some level at one time or another, and ... (click for more)
