You Thought That Was A Lot Of Rain?

We have had a lot of rain in north Texas this week; heavy soaking rains in many areas.  In fact parts of Collin County got drenched with 8″ of rain in just 4 or 5 hours Wednesday morning.   There was a lot of localized flooding.

But the rains we saw pale in comparison to what’s been going on in Florida.  Slow-moving Tropical Storm Fay never reached hurricane strength.  But because of the very slow movement it has been a prodigious rain-maker.  Parts of eastern Florida, particularly around Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach, have seen as much as 24″ of rain in the past 3 days.  That’s three times the amount of rain Collin County got.  And the rains there haven’t ended yet.  The flooding in some areas will get even worse tonight and Friday.
