Pensacola, Florida, Is A Waterworld After Being Hit With 2 Feet Of Rain [PHOTOS]

Pensacola, Florida, was submerged under more than 2 feet of water overnight as flash floods hit the area.
Alabama was also hit by heavy rain, and much of downtown Mobile is flooded, according to the Weather Channel.
The downpour is part of the same weather system that has brought dozens of tornadoes to the Midwest and the South, NBC News reports.

Interstate I-10 is closed.
I couldn't believe all the rain a short distance away here in Mobile either.(And, we know rain)
And seems to be moving (or has moved) into the Destin area. My family really enjoys vacationing down there. The Gulf Coast, on many occasions, seems to get some torrential rainstorms.
Last I saw, Alaska and Hawaii were still in the US.
I started to ping you at 11pm ish when twitter started lighting up with posts about all the water in pcola and mobile. Glad you’re not flooded out.
Please check in.
If you’d bothered to actually click the link he posted you’d have noted they specified ‘contiguous 48 states’.
I am in Destin for work. Lots and lots of rain and lightning and thunder all night long...
Yep, but they used a false title.
I am doing well in Mary Esther
Could you please send some of that rain a tad bit further west on I-10? We could really use some of it in Texas. Thanks.
My sister lives in Navarre and she told me this morning that she wasn’t to report to her base today because of the flooding.
Blame NBC News for that.
Additionally, this 'title' pertains only to cities/towns with a population of 100,000 or greater.
Mobile gets about 5 feet of rain annually. I recently read about a place in Bangladesh that had an annual rainfall level of 50 feet.
I am. I used to live in Alaska. So it often rubs me wrong when they are ignored in talking about the most "whatever" in the US.
a place in Bangladesh that had an annual rainfall level of 50 feet.
Dang, now that is like Alaska's Valdez or Thompson Pass. Of course theirs is in snow.
