Right. Go outside and imagine 3 feet of water standing as far as the eye can see.  Then imagine ALL of it running to the low spots.

Remember the river down the street from the last CoreCon? It's expected to crest about 45 (13.7m) feet above flood level.

The path of torrential rains in projected to go between Raleigh and Charlotte to exit into VA/WV/TN quadrant.  Looks like they'll dodge a bullet.

River here is up about 2.5 feet (.76m). This is a wind-driven tide, not rain.

That is mind-boggling. I can't imagine. Three feet of snow, sure, but that's only the equivalent of about 4 inches of rain

Wilmington and many other NC communities (some inland) are now islands --no road access.

I got an email from a friend in Fayetteville, NC: 11 inches of rain, trees have come down taking out power.  They have been on natural gas powered generator for a couple of days.  But generally all is well.
