The remnants of Ida have devastated the area. Like we said yesterday, multiple layers of atmospheric phenomena fused into a dangerous storm with an unlimited moisture feed, the Atlantic Ocean.
Therefore, we got a torrential rain basically across the 1-95 corridor. Potentially 13 inches around Edison, New Jersey.

I expect a very rough scene waking up tomorrow. Classic post storm sunshine will reveal the extent of the severity and damage.

Again, we experienced the scary dynamics normally reserved for the Midwest, combined with the remnants of a CAT 4 Hurricane plus the ocean’s moisture. No one was really spared in our area. I have never seen weather expand and flood so quickly, for so long.
