    According to the Washington POST Mississippi has been hit with big rain storms. Fingers crossed that everybody there or nearby is OK!

    From an article on August 24:

    “Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing heavy rain across the warned area. Between 6 and 10 inches of rain have fallen,” wrote the Weather Service in Jackson. “Additional rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are possible in the warned area. Flash flooding is already occurring with numerous roads flooded and homes threatened or inundated.”

    A handful of confirmed rainfall totals over the past 24 hours near and east of Jackson include 8.89 inches in Forest, 8.20 inches in Wiggins and 7.98 inches in Goshen Springs. Near Walnut, Miss., over 15 inches has fallen in two days. Given radar estimates and the reality on the ground, some totals may exceed these 24- and 48-hour values. …

    Widespread flash flooding and rescues were underway in places such as Canton, on the northeast of the Jackson metro area, and Brandon, on the eastern edge. Numerous road closures and power outages were also reported.

    At least 42 residents of a nursing home in Brandon have been evacuated because of rising waters. Rankin County, which includes Brandon, deployed three water rescue vehicles, two regular boats and one airboat, Sheriff Bryan Bailey said. …

    Despite warnings leading up to and during the event, rainfall totals of multiple inches per hour and 8 to 12 inches or more over a short period are bound to cause flooding. This is especially true on soil already saturated by previous rains.

    I bet Pip.I wish it would leave for awhile.
    We are in a good spot and our yard drains well.However,this is just through the line of bushes across the road from me.I looked around yesterday after the last down pour.We would not be able to leave the neighborhood if this is this right here.Very hilly here.The water crossing the road is deceptive,it had current.
    Weatherman just showed RAIN,for the next week.gosh There goes my garden.Pearl River is at 32′,normal 28′ and more rain.Might get very bad.

    Here we go again, Ian you aren’t welcome. Of course I have to work instead of being able to prepare. I’m much closer to the east coast than west, but the northeast quadrant of a storm is the worst so we will get a nasty blow unless it changes course dramatically. Right now I’m in the middle of the cone of doom.

    Be Safe Pip!
    Hope everyone in Florida and the Georgia/Alabama line stay safe and don’t get too much bad weather!
    My brother lives on the East Coast side of FL in Pompano Beach and should be safe from most of it.

    IAN Go HOME!
