wow - Tampa St. Pete is going to experience probably about 20" of rain or more by the time this is over coupled with the 4 - 6 foot storm surges along the beaches. Talk about a major flooding event - whoa.
My guess is that 20" could lead to seawall collapes because over 60% of those built in the 50's remain on the barrier islands and most don't have weep holes. Considering most of the barrier islands stand at 3' above sea level, we are potentially going to see saturation reached and 4 - 6 foot of water across the islands.. much like a Cat 4 would deliver.
