Look at the estimated rainfall over the past few days around the south!

SATURDAY:

Severe weather shifted east on Saturday, impacting the deep south with once again: large hail, damaging winds, tornado warnings and flash flooding. In some locations, over 7" of rain fell in a matter of hours! https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1386062394665799681 We saw widespread strong winds within severe thunderstorms. Gusts were measured at over 70 mph in parts of Louisiana. Damage has been reported in some of the strong storms, with trees and power lines knocked down into Alabama and Georgia. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1386032191986049027 Baseball sized hail was reported in Georgia on Saturday, especially right along the Georgia/Florida line as severe storms rolled through Saturday afternoon!
