Backyard weather station here in Miami (NMB) shows 3.35" of rain since yesterday afternoon, barometer is at 29.60 & dropping, virtually no wind currently. This event will probably be worse than Bonnie was earlier this year, which wasn't much worse than an afternoon T-Storm.

* FLOOD WATCH FOR PORTIONS OF DELAWARE...NORTHEAST MARYLAND...

* FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY EVENING

* LOW PRESSURE WITH TROPICAL CHARACTERISTICS WILL MOVE UP THE EAST
COAST TONIGHT AND THURSDAY. WITH EXTREMELY HIGH MOISTURE
CONTENT...A STRONG STORM INFLOW...AND LOTS OF INSTABILITY...RAIN
BEGINNING TONIGHT WILL BE HEAVY AT TIMES LATER TONIGHT AND
ESPECIALLY THURSDAY. THE RAIN SHOULD TAPER OFF THURSDAY NIGHT AS
THE CENTER OF TROPICAL LOW PRESSURE MOVES NORTH OF OUR AREA.
TOTAL PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO AVERAGE 2 TO 4 INCHES...BUT
LOCAL AMOUNTS MAY BE UP TO 6 OR 7 INCHES. ALTHOUGH THE FORECAST
COULD CHANGE
...AT THIS TIME THE GREATEST PRECIPITATION IS
EXPECTED OVER THE NORTHEAST MARYLAND SHORE...EASTERN
PENNSYLVANIA...DELAWARE...AND WESTERN NEW JERSEY. SLIGHTLY
LESSER ALTHOUGH STILL HEAVY AMOUNTS MAY OCCUR CLOSER TO THE NEW
JERSEY COAST.

* RECENT HEAVY RAINS OVER PARTS OF THE DELMARVA PENINSULA AND IN
THE SOUTHERN POCONOS HAVE ELEVATED STREAM LEVELS AND GROUND
MOISTURE TO SOME DEGREE. ALTHOUGH OTHER AREAS EXPERIENCED LESS
RAIN AND SOIL MOISTURE MAY BE LESS...COPIOUS RAIN AND ESPECIALLY
ENHANCED RAIN RATES WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE FLOOD THREAT.
SO...THERE IS A STRONG POTENTIAL FOR PROLONGED HEAVY RAIN WITH
THIS APPROACHING RAIN-MAKER THROUGHOUT OUR AREA...AND THIS MEANS
THERE IS A POSSIBILITY OF SERIOUS FLOODING FOR THE REGION
THURSDAY INTO THURSDAY NIGHT. FLOODING WOULD BE POSSIBLE FIRST
ON THE SMALLER STREAMS AND CREEKS...BUT MAY ALSO BE POSSIBLE
SOMEWHAT LATER FOR SOME OF THE LARGER RIVERS. A FEW EMBEDDED
THUNDERSTORMS COULD ALSO CAUSE LOCALLY HIGHER RAIN AMOUNTS
MAINLY SOUTH OF I-195 IN NEW JERSEY AND THE PENNSYLVANIA
TURNPIKE. ANY THUNDERSTORMS COULD CAUSE FLASH FLOODING...
ESPECIALLY IF THEY TRAIN OVER LOCAL AREAS. LOCALIZED FLASH
FLOODING MAY ALSO BE POSSIBLE IN HILLY AREAS...SUCH AS THE
LEHIGH VALLEY AND SOUTHERN POCONOS AS WELL AS NORTHWESTERN NEW
JERSEY.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A FLOOD WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING BASED ON CURRENT FORECASTS.

YOU SHOULD MONITOR LATER FORECASTS AND BE ALERT FOR POSSIBLE FLOOD WARNINGS. THOSE LIVING IN AREAS PRONE TO FLOODING SHOULD BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION SHOULD FLOODING DEVELOP.

What is the chance that this could go much farther west, putting the heavy rain up the Appalachians into the eastern Great Lakes?

Everyone stay safe! I know there has been so much flooding in the Carolinas. Hope this doesn't bring you a bunch more.
And everyone experiencing the flooding from this system, all stay safe.

Two farmers washed away in St. Elizabeth, presumed dead
2010-09-29 11:03:31 | (0 Comments)


The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries has received preliminary reports that as a result of the inclement weather, at least two farmers in Flagaman, St Elizabeth, Jamaica were washed away and are presumed dead.

The identities of the men are not yet known. However, it’s understood that
one of the bodies has been found. Further updates will be provided as soon
as more information is available.

In the meantime, the inclement weather has caused significant damage to
several crops in South West St. Elizabeth including cantaloupe, sweet
pepper, scallion and tomato.

And there are reports, that the Hounslow and Bigwoods area are flooded.

Looks like some of the carib moisture we were expecting to receive here is winding up up there.

Best wishes to those being affected, and who will be later. That amount of rain is no fun, and flash floods are nothing to mess around with.

We here in CA can sympathize with you--some of our worst weather disasters have been from minimal or even sub-tropical systems that simply dumped tons of rain.

And we are praying for those in life-threatening situations, esp. Jamaica.

Nine feared dead in Jamaica flood
2010-09-29 12:50:20 | with audio | (0 Comments)

At least nine people are feared dead as rains which lashed Jamaica over the last 48 hours took its toll.

Two farmers from St. Elizabeth have been added to six other persons from the Corporate Area who are believed to have lost their lives after their house collapsed in the Sandy Gully in Barbican.

And there are reports that a man was washed away near the Harbour View bridge.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries released information today saying that it had received preliminary reports that the rain has claimed the lives of at least two St. Elizabeth farmers.

The Ministry said the farmers who are from Flagaman, in the parish were washed away.

In a statement issued earlier, the Agriculture Ministry said the identities of the men have not yet been ascertained.

Our senior reporter Arthur Hall has been monitoring the situation in the corporate area and he also visited the scene in Barbican where one life was lost and six others believed dead.
