...Synopsis...
Beginning in the late morning of April 14th, a slow moving
convective line entered the WFO Mobile warning area. This
northeast to southwest orientated line later stalled northwest
of I-65 producing torrential rainfall. The highest radar rainfall
estimates of 8-10 inches fell over Washington and Clarke Counties
in Alabama as well as George and Stone County in Mississippi.
Notably in the community of Fulton, Alabama in Clarke County where
Bassett Creek overflowed its banks, at least 18 water rescues
from flooded homes and cars were undertaken and several downtown
businesses received flood damage. In southwestern George County,
at least 70 people were rescued from the Red Creek Off Road RV
campground due to flooding from Red Creek.

...Rainfall Reports...

Rainfall amounts are for the 24 hour period ending
at 7 am CDT on Sunday, April 15th.
