Floyd dumped heavy rain over a large portion of the region.
Ten years ago, Hurricane Floyd, the third major hurricane of that year, brought torrential rains and high winds to the Northeast after devastating eastern North Carolina and Virginia. Reduced from a category 2 hurricane at landfall in North Carolina to a large tropical cyclone as it crossed the mid-Atlantic region, the impacts were still catastrophic. Extensive flooding from rainfall totals as high as 14 inches and wind damage from winds up to 70 mph caused over 200 deaths, several injuries and over $640 million in damages from Maryland to Maine. More information about Floyd can be found at these web sites: National Weather Service, National Hurricane Center, and NWS Newport/Morehead NC.
