  • Description:
    "Large scale weather patterns allowed tropical moisture from the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee and the Atlantic Ocean to stream northward across the Mid-Atlantic Region, September 6-9, 2011. This pattern allowed continuous rain, very heavy at times, to persist for 48 hours. Because this event occurred only a week and a half after excessive rainfall from Hurricane Irene, the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee produced record flash flooding and river flooding across parts of central New York and central and eastern Pennsylvania. Given the historical significance of this event, the National Weather Service's Eastern Region chartered a Regional Service Assessment Team to examine warning and forecast services provided by the National Weather Service. This assessment provides additional focus on dissemination, preparedness, and warning response within the community as they relate to these services"--Preface.
