Rainfall from Hurricane Jeanne
September 27-28th, 2004

For current River/flood information (and forecasts): see the Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service Page, and for recent rainfall numbers: see our Precipitation Maps Page for Real-Time information.

Tropical Cyclone Jeanne as it moved over the Mid-Atlantic (Visible Sat Pic)

Jeanne took a long time to make it to her eventual landfall in Florida, but then quickly found her way up the Appalachians, and into the Mid-Atlantic. When she arrived here, she made lots of rain!


Jeanne's Meandering Track/Path

Rainfall from Hurricane Jeanne was up to 4 inches in many locations across the lower Susquehanna Valley.
The map below is the radar's rainfall estimate using the Tropical-rainfall relationship.
The highest rainfall report we received was 5 inches in western Adams County (in both Fairfield and Cashtown).
See the text list below the picture for details on the reports received so far (as of 8 pm EDT Mon).
 
Widespread flooding of most creeks and streams, as well as the smaller rivers and tributaries (of the Main Stem Susquehanna) occurred.

Rainfall through 8 pm EDT Monday:
