Not just August 2016, we had floods around here in May last year, May this year, and some minor flooding just a couple weeks ago. So a lot of places that weren't flood prone will have a chance of being flooded this time.
It's definitely a concern for this area. I posted right after you asking if this storm is going to move through quickly and hopefully not stall or move to slow.
Just watched TV-3 and he didn't think it was gonna drop that much rain around here, 2 to 6 inches total, and he doesn't expect a lot of wind. I wish they would not go into so much detail right away when the models are still coming out and just getting the information when it could change a whole lot in the next hour or so, tell people to start getting prepared for potential and not say that we will get this or that until we know much more. He to not even show that much wind in land he said most of the wind would be staying offshore. Not bad mouthing him or anything, just hoping he is correct or he will be getting a lot of heat from people around here.
