And what hurricane would that be? We haven't had any hurricanes yet this year. We did have a little storm that dumped rain on us for 4 days, but it sure wasn't a hurricane.

Thanks for thinking of us TF390. :)  This one never quite made it to hurricane status but has not been all that pleasant, either.  It has been, and still is, a major rainmaker.  I'm still right in the middle of it, and other Forumites are still in the path.  Most all the damage is due to flooding, with a few trees being blown over.  There is more about it on the "Weather" thread on this board. ;)

Since WOODBOWL hasn't checked in yet I'll jump out of turn.  The center passed over about 4 this afternoon without any rain.  Only recorded 1.25 inches since midnight.  Tonight and tomorrow may be a different story.

Anybody notice them two smudges off the winward islands are up to a 50% probability of development?

I got 20 inches of rain here, and I was flooded in until yesterday. Plus I had the tornado in my neighborhood.... :o  :(

It's amazing at the differences in rain totals during this storm.  In Tallahassee we have some places that received over 20" already with still more to come, and some places with "only" 9-10".  The flooding is pretty widespread and a lot of the tree related damage I think is the result of saturated soil not providing enough support.

We'll see what happens over the next couple of days.  I do not remember a storm though that touched every single part of the state this way.  Oh, and FOUR landfalls? WOW!
