This "train" of rain is aiming right for Mobile AL IMO:

That tide gauge appears to be working again, and the water level reading is ~7' -- about five feet higher than the predicted 2' level. This is some serious, and long-lasting storm surge!

Hope you made out OK with the NE quadrant of Barry dumping so much rain all the way to the Florida Panhandle. If you are still there, what shape are the beaches and campgrounds in? Any storm surge in that area?

Thanks,

Who thought building a city below sea level on the coast was a good idea?
New Orleans is habitable any time because the pumps run 24/7.

Ah! New Orleans wasn't designed to be below sea level, it sank!

Hi

Depending on a bunch of pumps and power systems that Thomas Edison sold them just *might* not be the best of plans either ....

I'm in Destin on a business trip right now and the beaches seem to be just fine. Took a walk on the beach last night and this morning. Windy, but nothing major to report. Can't speak for the campgrounds though.

Pretty amazing . . . this chart seems to reflect the center of Barry passing very close.

The Mississippi River at Natchez and Vicksburg MS got pretty high recently -- just shy of Major Flood Stage:
