We also have two tropical storms out in the Atlantic Ocean. Ophelia and Philippe are both tropical storms, but are not poising any threats right now:

We turn our attentions to Tropical Storm Maria. Maria is moving towards Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic and will reach there late this weekend. Maria is not forecast to become a Hurricane until she reaches just north of the Bahamas on Tuesday Morning. There, the track will be close enough where it will bear watching for cities on the East Coast.

Then, our attention will focus on Tropical Storm Maria. This looks like it will have to be monitored next week. It will come close to the east coast. Here is the graphic:

the Northeast. Lee is dropping upwards of 6" or more in areas of MD
and PA. Places are being severely impacted by flooding. These rains
will continue for atleast another 24 hours.
Then, we have tropical storm Maria in the Atlantic which will move to
north of the Bahamas early next week. Tropical Storm Nate has also
developed today in the Gulf of Mexico which will spin it's wheels for
a few days. All this and we still have over another month left in
hurricane season! Should continue to be active!
For today and tomorrow, expect more heavy rain to move into the area
and possibly cause more flooding over the region!
The silver lining is, when the rain stops, we should not have any
restrictions on lawn watering :) that is, it stops raining prior to
thoughts of an upcoming white winter!

The bad news, there are flood watches posted for a large area due to a frontal boundary approaching which will also suck up some of the remaining remnants of Lee. For our area, mainly 2-4" of rain will fall over the next 2 days which will cause some flooding in some parts of the area. Here is the HPC outlook and the graphic where the watches are:
As you can see by the graphic, areas around Tennessee are going to bare the brunt of the rain.
More to come as conditions warrant

Hurricane Katia still looks to make a re curve out into the Atlantic keeping it away from the East Coast of the US. Katia will be continued to be watched until she is no longer a threat

Mississippi. If there is any silver lining to the massive amounts of
rain the area will see is that it appears that a lot of dry air is
trying to work itself into the storm, which may spare New Orleans from
catastrophic amounts of rain. There will still be a lot, but it may
not be any where near the 20" or so shown on models.
Hurricane Katia has been shown on model guidance to begin a recurve
back out into the Atlantic in 3 days or so. It still bears watching
until it is gone.

I find the floods in Vermont very interesting. We got some pretty good damage in NJ but Vermont is destroyed.
Check the video below where several 500-1,000 pound propane tanks are caught in the spillway and leaking propane. If you watch one video the first one is one of the better ones.
Taftsville bridge flood:
Car going down the river:
Building being ripped apart
Quechee Bridge other side after the pavement washes out: (a little shaky)
What's left of the bridge:
more propane tanks hitting a bridge:
