According the various news sources flooding hasn't been this bad since 2004 when Ivan and Frances both ran through NC.


I agree. I am a native and lived here til 2001 when I moved to Nashville but, moved back to the area 2 years ago.
After living through the floods of 2010 in Nashville and now this event.
I can confidently say that there are lots of similarities between the two. Many people were not prepared .
Flash foods are common here and can cause our local mountain creeks and rivers to flood anytime we have alot rain or a tropical system comes through but add to that the daily rain storms we have gotten for almost 2 weeks straight and it is presenting a very dangerous situation in many remote mountain communities due to mudslides and very swift waters.
hopefully the Southerly Flow breaks soon

This is system is crazy..  here in the Hendersonville / Henderson CO. area alone we have had 18 inches of rain since May 15th....... lots of road closures as of this morning due to flooding.

Understandable.  Henderson Co is in a prime upslope area of western NC where the low coastal plain of South Carolina rises quickly toward the mountains.  With the constant southeasterly fetch from the Atlantic & Gulf, it's no wonder you've seen crazy rain amounts.

Yes and Saluda (just to our south) has really caught the Brunt of this..
They are in that convergent zone.

It can be calm and overcast in Hendersonville and go just  10 miles down 26 and you are in the middle of a downpour. 

It is really a sight to see

Sounds like a cool place to live.  Changes in elevation over short distances make for some very interesting weather.
