    I lived in the Charleston SC area for over 35 years and downtown Charleston ALWAYS floods it doesn't have to be a tropical storm just heavy rain. I can't count how many times it did when I lived there but it's called the Low Country for a good reason.


    Why Does It Seem Like
    Charleston Always Floods When
    It Rains?

    The Greater Charleston area has experienced
    drainage and flooding problems since its
    founding more than 300 years ago.
    It is difficult to drain a city that is surrounded
    by water, next to the ocean, and only a few
    feet above mean sea level in many places.
    Various drainage techniques have been
    implemented since the 1800s with varying
    degrees of success.

    Megastorm Patricia inflicts little damage on Mexican coast

    CHAMELA, Mexico (AP) — Just a day after menacing Mexico as one of history's strongest storms, Hurricane Patricia left surprisingly little damage in its wake Saturday and quickly dissipated into a low-pressure system that posed little threat beyond heavy rain.
    The hurricane's most powerful punch landed on a sparsely populated stretch of Mexico's Pacific Coast before the system crashed into mountains that sapped its potentially catastrophic force. The popular beach city of Puerto Vallarta and the port of Manzanillo were spared the brunt of the violent weather.
    Authorities were still checking on some isolated areas, where roads had been blocked by downed trees, but the devastation appeared to be far less than feared.
    There were no reports of deaths or injuries, said Roberto Lopez Lara, interior secretary for the state of Jalisco. Later, President Enrique Pena Nieto reported that between 3,000 and 3,500 homes had been damaged and the storm also affected 3,500 hectares (about 8,650 acres) of farmland. He said 235,000 people had lost electricity when the storm hit, and about half had power restored by Saturday.

    It was a remarkable outcome, considering that Patricia had once been a Category 5 hurricane with winds up to 200 mph (325 kph) before coming ashore with slightly less power in an area dotted with sleepy villages and a few upscale hotels. [more]

    miracle no lives were lost. Homes were destroyed, not simply damaged, according to the photo and caption. am sure the people in those sleepy villages whose homes were destroyed will be struggling mightily to replace what was lost. article downplays impacts to their lives. but the people in the villages are likely to pull together to help those impacted, friends and family, to the extent their limited resources can stretch. those 8000 acres of damaged farmland may represent a year's income for a lot of those people. just a thought, it's all in a person's perspective how big the impacts actually are.
