Philadelphia Rains

I know this is late and I’m sorry for that but I’ve been traveling a ton so my report is late but here it is!!! So I’ve herd that Philadelphia has had a ton of rain, actually record rainfall!!!

Heavy rains cause the old rainfall record to be destroyed, and make big floods! The rains have trapped drivers and authorities have had to shut down some roads. The rains have had American Airline flights to shut down at the Philadelphia International Airport because the rains.

A record daily rainfall of 8.26 inches fell Sunday August 4th, at Philadelphia International Airport, said by the National Weather Service. The number had incresed overnight the total was 7.99 earlier. More than 7,  i’m not kidding , 7 inches fell in a a 4 HOUR PEIRIOD!! (To me thats a lot, but hey I’m young!!!)

That’s a lot!!! To where it passed the previous record of Tropical Storm Floyd, which was 6.63 inches. It was set in September 1999. On Sunday the 4th, of August, 8 cars were submerged in high water at the Eastbound lane of  I-76 at Kings Highway. Two humans were left stranded in a car in the middle of the street. Police said they were rescued I don’t know how. Thankfully there were no injuries!!!
