30 Day Rainfall Totals Reach 20″

Irene has moved out of the Mid-Atlantic states and into New England and she will likely be remembered most for producing flooding rains.

3 to 5 inches of rain fell along the Interstate 95 corridor between Baltimore, Washington and Fredericksburg. Further east, record amounts of rain have fallen:

Parts of the Mid-Atlantic from the eastern suburbs of Washington and Baltimore to Philadelphia and New York will likely break their all time rainfall records for August.  *** Nearly 20 inches of rain has fallen from roughly Church Hill, MD (east of Baltimore MD) across the Delaware Bay into southern New Jersey (Salem, Alloway, and Woodstown NJ).
