...Synopsis...
Beginning in the late morning of April 14th, a slow moving
convective line entered the WFO Mobile warning area. This
northeast to southwest orientated line later stalled northwest 
of I-65 producing torrential rainfall. The highest radar rainfall 
estimates of 8-10 inches fell over Washington and Clarke Counties 
in Alabama as well as George and Stone County in Mississippi. 
Notably in the community of Fulton, Alabama in Clarke County where
Bassett Creek overflowed its banks, at least 18 water rescues 
from flooded homes and cars were under- taken and several downtown
businesses received flood damage. In southwestern George County, 
at least 70 people were rescued from the Red Creek Off Road RV 
campground due to flooding from Red Creek. 

...Rainfall Reports...
