Heavy Rains in the Aftermath of Hurricane Isaias
The data has been analyzed from our recent run in with Hurricane Isaias. As you can see in the image below, the rains were not exactly evenly distributed. Extremely heavy rains fell on coastal South Carolina, especially along Highway 17 from Charleston to Myrtle Beach. Locations such as Awendaw and McClellanville received between 6 and 8 inches!
For North Carolina, the surprising recipient of the most rain is Raleigh with 3 to 4 inches of rain, and slightly greater amounts in the suburbs to the southwest. Flooding is expected to continue to be an issue as the rain water slowly moves east, through the rivers, and heads back out to sea.
After Hurricane Isaias, Familiar Weather Patterns Return for Midweek
