Hurricane Rain In Ohio? I grew up in the Seattle area until I was 22 years old – yeah, it rains there. I then moved to Columbus for grad school. After my first year at Ohio State, I remember telling people, “Nine of the ten heaviest showers of rain I have ever seen have been in Ohio.” My classmates laughed, but it is true. Seattle drizzles, Ohio pours! Even back then I wondered where all that weather came from… Here is one place – from a hurricane miles and miles away.
09/11/2018 Hurricane Florence Update: Hurricane Florence has altered its’ path towards the east coast. The Weather Channel reports – Hurricane Florence has rapidly intensified into a Category 4 major hurricane south-southeast of Bermuda and is likely to lash the U.S. East Coast later this week with life-threatening storm surge, destructive winds and massive inland rainfall flooding in one of the strongest strikes on record for this part of the East Coast.
Impact On Ohio: It is possible, but far from definite, that Hurricane Florence (a tropical storm by the time it starts to go inland) can reach anywhere from Cincinnati to Columbus to Cleveland.
If you’re in the East Coast threat zone, now is the time to develop or firm up your hurricane preparedness plan and be ready to implement it if necessary. Residents in low-lying or along rivers areas should follow evacuation orders from local officials with regards to flooding.
