Well the NHC did name Invest 96L to TD4, and ultimately into Tropical Storm Danny this afternoon just ahead of landfall. They also mentioned one of our weather stations along the southern end of Folly Beach for reference in their decision-making processes along with hurricane reconnaissance.
Up to 8 inches of rain fell is some locations between Limehouse and Hardeeville, this creating some fairly bad flooding along Highway 17 South, including these reports from Chris Jackson. Meanwhile, Savannah also had quite a number of storms with a great deal of lightning. Some damages were reported with a building fire after two strikes. A tree was down on Hwy 170 about 2 miles E of the Savannah River…most likely caused by lighting.
All of this was a more fortunate turnout than a stronger storm with additional dangerous conditions. Just a wake-up call for the rest of the season! Reminder to have your hurricane kits update and evacuation plan ready to execute if or when the time occurs.
Stay safe and stay weather aware!
