When we will see rain from Hurricane Florence in the Triangle

As Tropical Storm Florence lingers, there are a lot of questions regarding how bad it will get in the Triangle and Sandhills.

The NWS Newport/Morehead City office reported that 25.77 inches of rain has fallen at their Hoffman Remote Operated Weather Station (RAWS).

That rainfall total breaks the old record of 24.06 inches set during Hurricane Floyd in 1999.

Additional rain will continue to fall into next week causing rain totals to only increase.
