Thanks, Alana. I didn't know until I saw your post.
Do you know if any schools are closed?

Considering it hasn't even rained overnight here in Stt, I couldn't really say and I haven't looked at the radar on the computer as yet.
There was no mention of school closings in anything I've read or received. Just the above meteorological bulletin.

It's just starting to rain here in my location and radar shows a huge area of moisture. Drive safely everyone.

Flooding big time on STX. 5 corners under water. Stay off the roads unless you really must.

It started to rain here in Stt a bout 7:30 this morning and hasn't stopped since and is now coming down harder.

I am sure we'll have much flooding but I won't be on the roads to check it out. It's dark and chilly! It's rather nice if you don't have drive in these terrible conditions. Good day to catch up reading.
Stay safe everyone.

That's a shit load of H2O. Schools on STX closing at 1pm and many areas reported serious flooding. Not due to stop raining anytime soon.

It's like a snow day.

Yeah, me 2. Schools now closed on all islands. Lots of road warnings. Can't imagine how bad Sunny Isle or Gallows Bay is about now.
