I wonder why the national weather service has not issued a severe thunderstorm warning for my area because I am getting heavy windswept rain with lots of lightning

The rain situation here is awful. Yard is flooded (never happens) and I’ve been bailing water out of my basement to try to keep it from flooding. I unfortunately think I’ve got some major foundation repairs in store.

Looks like we did exceed 3” of rain - in about 5 hours. That’s crazy.

These totals are the latest from the NWS in Mount Holly. But if you look at the times reported it was only midway through the rain for many people so you can add about another inch onto these in many areas:

Thank you, yes it seemed like more rain than that it teamed for hours and my pool is filled to the rim, I am so mad my husband has not re installed my weather station yet. He had new dock pilings installed and my weather station was on the old ones...

This article has some of the updated final rain totals. Some are reminiscent of tropical storm rains we've gotten here. Also a good photo of the tornado in Union County:

What's most impressive about those 3-5" rainfall totals is that its not from a protracted nor'easter or a tropical system working up the coast where you can get heavy rain for a full day. Most of these totals fell in just a little over 4 hours.
