Crazy, crazy night. I haven't seen flooding like this EVER in the metro area. 5-9 inches just tonight alone!

When daylight arrives, I have a feeling we are going to see some serious damage. Irene was nothing compared to this!


For those of you who are familiar with the area, the beltway has been closed for hours (during rush hour). It isn't uncommon to hear of 4-6 hour commutes for trips normally taking just an hour or so...

DC as well as Pennsylvania?


This weekend is already proving to be of great interest. Kind of adds more 'doom and gloom' to what may occur in New York...

Suburb.

But I have seen similar all across the area. (I was one of those people who spent 4 and half hours to do what normally takes one hour.
)



That radar image has looked essentially the same for days.

I've never seen it do that here.

I'm here in good old Texas. Rain? What the heck is that, half the dang states on fire!
I know what you meant though...lol. When this drought ends it will be with a flood, like usual.

Hopefully the guy in that picture doesn't have a cold air intake.

Well, we have been having tremendous amounts of rainfall since Saturday, so the totals are far, far higher.

There have already been a few deaths here tonight.

I know yesterday (and some of today)...there was a very strange "system" that was a strait line of rain, from VA that headed strait up north, in a line, through DC, MD, and PA and some of NY. I look at the radar daily, sometimes several times a day, I had never seen a south to north storm such as this one....

I know Baltimore had some flooding yesterday. Since the hurricane blew threw the east coast, as saturated as some areas were prior to that, this system really had an impact.

Be glad that Katia is going to miss the east coast (last I heard).

I can't ever remember seeing the same either.

Any weather gurus out there know what kind of system this is?

Hurricane leftovers courtesy of the Gulf.
I forgot the name of the storm though.
Odd that it dropped the rain that far North, usually it dumps when it hits the mountains.
The jet stream must be far North and high pressure zone is keeping it stalled right over you.

Lee was it's name and it sure is moving slowly ... brace and prepare to be inundated ... this, is a just warm up.
36 feet of water flowing down Main St and clearing everything in it's path, now that's a serious problem ... google "1977 Johnstown Flood" for more details.

3 more systems revving up and getting ready to encroach on Lee's territories ... this is one occasion that i hope IF HAARP can steer these systems, it will. Prayers be with you all
