Nadine and Michael were Atlantic storms at the same time (along with another one called Leslie) - the first time on record that we have had 3 Atlantic named storms simultaneously with winds >= 65 mph in October.
But Nadine was just a nice little tropical storm that stayed over the water and did no damage. .

At the marina every afternoon the weather makes its presence felt and the distant rumbling of thunder ensures you are aware that it is early afternoon. No need for a watch here!

The view from GOES East (8 am-noon ET Sep. 15) shows Tropical Storm #Florence still hasn't moved much, as it begins its slow slog inland from the Carolina coast. Florence has already inundated parts of North Carolina with record-setting rainfall, surpassing two feet in some locations. This morning the National Weather Service reported rainfall totals of nearly 24 inches in Morehead City, NC and more than 30 inches in Swansboro – with still more on the way.
The National Hurricane Center warns that Florence's excessive rainfall will continue to produce catastrophic flash flooding and prolonged significant river flooding in the Carolinas over the coming days.
