The Southeast Flood Event is in Progress, Unfortunately

This photo was taken in downtown Charleston a few minutes ago. Unfortunately, things are going to go from bad to worse.

Here is the rainfall for the last 24 hours:
As much as ten inches have fallen already. 

Of course, when assessing flood potential, one must factor in recent rainfalls so that river stages and soil saturation. Amounts of more than five inches have been comment across the region.

The rains continue to fall.

Here is the forecast additional rainfall: More than sixteen inches!
Catastrophic flooding will result into next week from this weather system!
