The rain forecast until October 2 prepared by the Weather Prediction Center.

Ian set records for the highest water levels ever observed in multiple locations including Fort Myers and Naples in Southwest Florida.

Estimates and observations show that more than 300 mm of rain fell between 12 and 24 hours in a swath of the region.

In some of the hardest-hit places, this exceeds rainfall rates for flood events of 1 in 1,000 years, according to NOAA data.

Storm surge reached 3.6 meters in places.

Life-threatening storm surge could occur for a stretch of coastline from northeast Florida to an area north of Charleston, South Carolina.

The prediction center also published a forecast of the risk of flash floods for the next from this Thursday to Sunday.

In the areas colored pink, the risk is moderate, at least 40%;

in the yellow ones the risk is low, at least 15%;

and in the green ones it is marginal, with a minimum of 5% probability.
