Do you know the actual values in inches or mm?

It's terrible in those areas. They've never seen this type of flooding before. It is basically up and down I-95 from one end of NC to the other and east.

Did you receive a lot of rain? You're on the east side of NC too!

I live in a humid subtropical climate, and 15 inches is what I'd expect to see in 4 months!  :shock:

Here we have around 500-750mm/yr, which is about 20 to 30 inches. But most of it is during summer, I remember days with "even" 4 inches/day.

Somewhere around 5 inches. NWS data from my station shows about 4.60. My station is down right now, (pole bent) and I shut off the feed last night and it isn't showing on the map, but I saw a rainfall list on the NWS Newport / Morehead City NC of totals. I think the wind was at least 70, maybe 80 last night.

The flooding here isn't bad like it is inland. The river that is down from me does not flood like it does further inland because it is so wide.

Here in Jupiter, FL, my station hit a 51mph gust. Power went out for two days. Thankfully, it came back on today.
We were lucky, it was tracking right for us, then jogged to the north and hit Grand Bahama Island instead. I'll take 51 mph over 130 mph any day.
Was wondering how you did down there.
Good to hear things are getting back to normal.

Thanks man! I think we all dodged a bullet! I'm glad to hear you guys up there were spared too. It was nice heavy wind for a while though. A nice stormy night. :)

Here is Wilmington, the eye passed over as a cat1. The heavy rain was on the leading edge and the higher winds on the backside. Not too much flooding here. A lot of 2"-3" diameter branches down and a few older trees over. Power was out all night. All in all it was not too bad.

OK, here's one you don't hear after every Hurricane:


Bomb squad detonates Civil War era cannon balls unearthed by Hurricane
USA TODAY    - ‎51 minutes ago‎   
      
Bomb squads successfully detonated Civil War-era cannon balls uncovered on a beach near Charleston after Hurricane Matthew ripped through the area.
Banners, tags, widgets, etc. are why I have Signatures turned off.

Just a couple of days ago my weather radio was getting coastal flood warnings. Cape Fear river still at flood stage with high tide. But otherwise no hugely unusual flooding compared to normal high tide flooding in the known spots.

But holy crap, I've seen some really high tide levels (18+ years here)... I guess the eye was pretty close-the winds went fairly calm, then the backside hit, as was reported, they were worse. Only got about 3" rain at my house, 10 miles inland it jumped to probably 12" or so. Never lost power.

Usual "yard debris", but the last ice storm a few years back dropped more branches. Hard to say we dodged it, considering the massive loss from flooding inland. Water levels on the major flooded rivers were higher than from Floyd.

Not to argue the stay or leave decision (I'm in the stay camp), but there was a lady that left FL for NC, and her motel in NC was flooded--she had to evacuate a second time-to a shelter. That's some serious suck...
