DEL­UGE

Calgary Herald - - WORLD -

Me­te­o­rol­o­gist Ryan Maue of weath­er­mod­els.com said Florence could dump a stag­ger­ing 18 tril­lion gal­lons of rain over a week on North and South Carolina, Vir­ginia, Ge­or­gia, Ten­nessee, Ken­tucky and Mary­land. That’s enough to fill the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay or cover the en­tire state of Texas with nearly 100 mm of wa­ter, he cal­cu­lated. North Carolina alone is fore­cast to get 9.6 tril­lion gal­lons, enough to cover the Tar Heel state to a depth of about 250 mm.
