Certainly nothing like the hit on Louisiana, but here in North Florida we had three days of torrential rain and some tornados from bands coming off the storm. City streets were closed in parts of Jacksonville, as well as a section of Interstate 10. The city of Orlando had a confirmed tornado in the downtown center, Fortunately for us, our rivers were a bit low due to less precipitation in the spring, so we shouldn’t have a problem once we start to dry out a bit.
We have continued to have short little storms off and on throughout today, and the air feels as humid as a warm bathtub when it’s not raining. I admire our roofers. They were here about 7:30 this morning and work furiously in between the rain showers.
This advisory from 30 minutes ago explains why we're getting so much rain where I live. Guerrero is the state west of Oaxaca.
The Tropical Depression "CINCO-E" has formed to the south of the coasts of Guerrero. It presents a displacement towards the west-northwest at 20 km / h and favors the potential of intense rains in Guerrero and Oaxaca.
Yes, packing a punch to Corpus Christie area as a Cat. 1. Another separate one in the Pacific swacking Hawaii big island and perhaps Maui. And yet another one on the Atlantic side TBC...too soon to tell.
Yes, another one... We' re still feeling the effects all the way here in NOLA of Hanna who for a Cat 1 certainly made a mess and Gulf Coast Texas saw a lot of flooding and other damage. Makes one realize how far reaching a "little" Cat 1 can reek havoc this far away. It has been raining for 3 days straight here.
