Rain, unrelated to Joaquin. The hurricane itself is still far away in the Bahamas. And it it isn't expected to be much of an issue. A storm that will follow behind Joaquin will be an issue, especially further inland.

Water front in Southport is flooded around Fishy Fishy and other businesses.

Saint James is monitoring ponds and Polly Gully for water levels. Just guess-ta-mating on Polly Gully but this morning is was probably 3-5 feet below the bridge level. Around noon it was probably only 2-3 feet below bridge level but lower again this evening. NWS is estimating as much as another 10-15 inches tonight. I am not familiar with the pond infrastructure in St James but apparently some ponds can be emptied into Polly Gully which in turn empties into the ICW and ocean so tides play a part.

There is a lot of standing water on the roads but so far it is mostly draining as it should. The rain has be pretty continuous but not real heavy so it has time to run off.

If this continues for 2 or more days, I am not sure but it could get bad in places around here.
