Fay still hanging around

Image by spacer.gif NASA
Big sprawled-out Fay is still going with 50 mph winds, here's an image you can zoom and pan around of her from yesterday at 2:30 p.m. Charleston's labeled near the top-middle of the image, just on the outer-reach of the storm.

Update August 23: We've updated the story, go here for the latest.

Update 5:27 p.m.: Fay's weather has run through town and flooded many streets. The rain is expected to generally be better from here out, but there's a continuing chance of showers for the next several days.

Watch for more flooding again today around midnight.

Original post: Fay's continuing it's way across Florida where it has killed two women. Locally, Fay's doing a lot less but it will still be wet and windy in town with a host of other risks.

And, as yesterday, watch for heavy rain, flooding, tornados, high winds, thunder, high surf, etc. High tide is around noon and midnight, so watch for flooding most keenly then.

The Post and Courier's got a video of some video of wind, rain, Charleston, and surfers.
