The following is a list of selected rainfall reports from the Wilmington County Warning Area during the passage of Hurricane Irene
As Irene brushed the Cape Fear region, heavy rain impacted the coastal and northeast portions of the Wilmington County Warning Area. The heaviest rain fell across Brunswick County, New Hanover County, and Pender County. Although a widespread 4 to 8 inch rain occurred over this area, only minor flooding impacts were noted due to the antecedent very dry ground caused by the ongoing severe drought.
