Heavy rainfall across the mid-Atlantic region caused significant problems on Friday and more impacts are expected through the weekend.
Many locations from the Carolinas to New Jersey received over an inch of rain, with the heaviest rain falling closer to the coast. Road closures, power outages and flight delays were caused as a result of the wet weather.
Some of the moisture could be traced back to Hurricane Joaquin, but most of it was the result of a separate storm system that crept up the coast. Even more rainfall is expected to fall along the East Coast this weekend, with a potentially historic situation unfolding across the Carolinas.
