Heavy Rain Soaks Southeast

23 Apr 2017, 1:21 pm

A wet weekend for so many areas across the southeastern United States.

On Saturday, rain drenched parts of Tennessee and many areas to the south in the Lower Mississippi River Valley. Many areas picked up between 1.00″-2.00″, with localized much higher totals. High and standing water continues to be problematic.

 

 

The wet weather then spread eastward to the southeast on Sunday. Isolated areas of flooding developed as some communities picked up between 1.00″ and 3.00″ of rainfall from the Carolinas to Florida. Florida managed to see some very intense rainfall in localized areas, picking up over 6.00″ of rainfall.

 

There is still concern for flooding for parts of the southeast through the end of the weekend. A flood watch is in effect for parts of Tennessee, Kentucky, the Virginias, and the Carolinas through Sunday.
