- A rare meteorological setup in the
southeastern USA caused a tremendous amount of moisture to be
driven from the Atlantic Ocean inland, right over South Carolina.
The result... A LOT of rain, all in one place, for days. Some
areas received over 600mm of rain. Knowing that this was likely
going to be an extreme event, a team from The Weather Network
was assembled and we headed straight into the flood zone. Myself,
Mark Robinson and Jaclyn Whittal spend four days in Columbia
and Charleston, South Carolina, documenting this historic event.
Here's a radar animation of
the rain that caused all the flooding.
