2016 Hurricane Season Storm Tracks



Tropical Storm Bonnie was a tropical storm that formed from non-tropical origins northeast of the Bahamas. It made landfall near Charleston, South Carolina, as a tropical depression and brought heavy rainfall to coastal sections of the Carolinas.

Rainfall totals from Bonnie ranged from 4 to 10 inches across much of the central and southern portions of the South Carolina coast and adjacent areas of eastern Georgia. The highest observed rainfall total in this area was 10.36 inches near Ridgeland in Jasper County, South Carolina. This rainfall caused extensive flooding in Jasper County, where portions of Interstate 95 and U.S. Highway 17 were closed. Road flooding also occurred in portions of Dorchester, Charleston, and Hampton Counties in South Carolina and Bulloch County in Georgia.

There was one casualty reported in association with Bonnie – a person drowned in the surf at Carolina Beach, North Carolina on 29 May. Several rescues were also reported due to strong rip currents in association with Bonnie in Wrightsville Beach and Carolina Beach, North Carolina, and in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on 29–30 May.

Tropical Cyclone Report For Tropical Storm Bonnie














Louisiana’s no-name August storm:

Major flooding in Prarieville, Louisiana on Friday, August 12, 2016.

A slow-moving Tropical Storm like disturbance dumped colossal amounts of rain on southern Louisiana in mid-August, causing 13 deaths and an estimated $10 - 15 billion in damage. The storm behaved much like most tropical depressions, tropical storms, and hurricanes that have taken their time moving through the Gulf Coast region. Some parts of Louisiana recorded more than 20" of rain in 48 hours.
