Heavy rains fell in the greater Savannah area Wednesday, June 20, 2007. Heavy rains also fell in southern Effingham County around Rincon as well as the Bluffton-Rose Hill area of S.C. Nearly 3 inches fell at our weather station at Wright Square in downtown Savannah with possible heavier amounts to the immediate south and east of that area resulting in widespread street flooding in Savannah. Less than a quarter of an inch fell along the islands and over the far south side of Savannah. On a positive note, the tide was going out during the rain event. The flooding would have been even greater if the tide was high or was incoming.
