More upstate than coastal but technically piedmont.

How high do elevations get to your west (within SC limits)?
Likely going to be pretty bad up in the NC mountains as all this eventual rainwater will need to travel somewhere. Reminds me of what happened in Vermont with Irene.

I donít think SC goes real high maybe 2k or 2.5. This rain isnít going to be what we thought. I only have about 1.5 so far.

Sassafras Mountain in the extreme western part of the state goes up 3.5k.

It's way too early to say that the rain won't be what you thought. Remember that this storm is slooooooowwww, and that as per a lot of modelling, most of your rain is still to come. The GFS and NAM both show an additional 3-6" in your area, which would bring it up to 4.5 to 7.5" (which is closer to what you all were expected to get).

Though most of the moisture has now worked towards inland NC, and even the mountains. This is where things can start to get really dangerous with mudslides, etc. Predictions have been indicating the possibility of Florence there being like Irene in Vermont.

Mercifully, Florence is FINALLY moving. It is moving north at 14 mph, while at this time yesterday it was still moving at 2 mph. Still, the damage is done, and Florence couldn't move quickly enough.

6.8" for me. No power issues. Winds gusted probably close to 50 but mainly in the 30-40 range. I would say particularly east of Charlotte is where it started to get worse.

Was there much flooding in your area? I'm curious to hear how your area fared with the rain. I know that at least parts of the Catawba River (the river near where you are) is expected to flood, but you know the area better than I do.
