PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
National Weather Service WILMINGTON NC
1005 AM EDT Sun Sep 16 2018

...WILMINGTON HAS BROKEN ITS ALL-TIME ANNUAL RAINFALL RECORD
AND IS EXPERIENCING ITS WETTEST WEATHER EVENT IN HISTORY...

As of 9:00 AM this morning, annual rainfall in Wilmington, North 
Carolina totals 86.79 inches. This breaks the previous annual record
of 83.65 inches set during 1877. 

Hurricane Florence has dropped 23.59 inches in Wilmington so far.
This breaks the record for the wettest single weather event in 
the city's history. The previous record was set during a 
significant flood event in late September 2010 at 22.54 inches. 
The previous record rainfall due to a named tropical system was 
Hurricane Floyd at 19.06 inches in September 1999.

Since there are over three months remaining in the year, it is
possible the annual rainfall total will end up over 100 inches in
Wilmington.
