Tropical Storm Henri Aftermath.

Last night and early this morning lots of thunder, lightning, and rain as Tropical Storm Henri passed through. My weather station didn’t record much wind, but nearly 5 inches (125 mm) of rain. After the rain stopped, I went for a walkabout down Grandview Road to the single lane bridge over Rock Brook. Normally, Rock Brook is a quiet stream. It was running hard today. A tree had been washed onto the side of the bridge. We could get some more rain through the day and overnight. Somerset county has reported several locations where roads are closed due to flooding.

    1. Just walked down to the bridge after the remnants of Hurricane Ida passed through last night. Trees are down blocking the bridge, and a section of asphalt washed off of the roadway. Will post images in a bit.
