Episode Narrative The upper level ridge that had been over the region weakened on the 25th as an upper level storm system moved across the area. This allowed for numerous showers and thunderstorms to develop during the afternoon. Enough instability was present for a few of these storms to become severe. Copious amounts of moisture also existed, allowing these storms to produce very heavy rainfall as well.
Event Narrative Heavy rain of 4.1 inches in just over 90 minutes caused flash flooding of Furnace Creek as well as urban poor drainage flooding in Rocky Mount. Around a dozen streets were closed and water was flowing into some businesses downtown. Several cars received water damage, and two homes received damage to their cinder block basements. Extensive damage also occurred at the Furnace Creek Swim Club as the pool and surrounding areas became flooded with 2 feet of water.
