April 6, 2008


A few areas around North Escambia received up to a foot of rain by midday Saturday. Minor flooding was reported around the area, but there were no reports of major damage.

Flood warnings were issued for the Escambia River near Century, and for the Perdido River near Barrineau Park. Both warning have since expired.

Radar estimates from the National Weather Service indicate seven to twelve inches of rain in an area from Highway 97 in Walnut Hill west and southwest into Baldwin County, Alabama. By contrast, the radar estimates about two inches in the heart of Molino and about two to three inches in Century. It estimates about four inches to six inches fell from Davisville to Bratt, and about five or six inches in McDavid and Bogia. The graphic at the top of the page shows the total NWS rainfall estimates.
