Bracing for More Water Issues

Over 5.50" has fallen at my house since 11:00am yesterday. A large shield of moderate to occasionally heavy rain is moving in from the west, promising to dump another 1-2" before tapering later today.

The ground near my house has handled the water mightily, relatively speaking. News reports coming in from the Metro area are impressive, if not scary. Lots of water rescues.

I'm expecting to battle water issues in my basement for the rest of the day....

Stormy Night

As of 10:00pm, I've recorded 3.75" at my house here in Valley Station (southwest of KSDF). Looking at Radar returns, it looks like this is just the beginning of multiple episodes of heavy rainfall lined up for tonight.

Flash flood warning has just been posted for the Louisville area.

Water is starting to seep into my basement. Once I get 4", water generally tries to get in (I'm going to have to get that fixed)

I wish the atmosphere would hurry up and get overworked so rainfall will diminish. But, it looks like rotating storms out west of Louisville may move in by midnight. If anything, looks like more heavy rain on the order of 1-2 additional inches overnight.

And they're still calling for rain tomorrow???
