In early October 2015, a stalled mid-latitude weather system directed a fire hose of deep tropical moisture across South Carolina over a four-day period leading to record-breaking rainfall totals and devastating flooding across the state. Rainfall totals around the Charleston area ranged from 16-27″, and many parts of the region experienced major flooding, inundating neighborhoods, roads, and other infrastructure.

Several lessons learned in Charleston may apply to many of our coastal communities in the Southeast and Caribbean.
