In terms of flooding we have a worst case scenario happening right now. It is stuck on the coast. It came ashore this morning at 7am then it went back out to sea. Not too far. So it is just rain, rain, rain, and more rain. Add to that, it has no speed. It is only moving 5mph which is slower than most of us walk.
Everyone was hoping it would make land and then zoom away. It is doing the opposite of that. It is currently squatting like it is taking a vacation at Myrtle Beach. This is going to be bad. Not because of the wind so much, but because of the flooding.
Lots of reports of people on their roof. Imagine that. Camping out on your roof with the kids and grandma in the dark with high winds and rain and the phones are out. Horrible situation. Already some of the people already rescued are saying that it was foolish of them to try to stick it out.
