Recipe For Widespread, Serious Flooding

National Weather Service Forecast
When this much rain (as much as seven inches are forecast near the Georgia - North Carolina border) falls over this large an area, flooding develops. And...

...when part of the area is already much wetter than usual, major to extreme flooding may occur.

If you live in the areas where heavy rains are forecast to occur, you will want to be thinking about:
  • Putting together a "go kit" so you can evacuate quickly, if necessary. 
  • Consider ways you can route critical supplies around flooded areas. 
  • Monitor for the potential for tornadoes and severe thunderstorms which could occur Friday and Saturday from east Texas into the Southeast. I'll have more on that on the blog tomorrow.
