Goodbye Dolly

I admit I “borrowed” that title from the National Weather Service.  Their office in Brownsville wrote a summary on the effects of Hurricane Dolly in south Texas this week by the same title, and I liked it.  Their story shows an area of 100+ mph winds hit on Padre Island just a few miles north of Brownsville.  It also included a graphic of the total rainfall from the storm.

As you can see, there was a streak of rainfall greater than 14 inches along the path of the landfalling eye of the storm.

You can read the entire NWS story here:
