  • March 9, 2017 – On October 8, 2016, Hurricane Matthew made landfall in South Carolina bringing copious amounts of rain to the eastern half of the state. Recently, the South Carolina State Climatology Office (SCSCO) released an interactive journal (dnr.sc.gov/matthew2016) describing the impacts of Matthew. MetStat® analyzed the precipitation using MetStorm®  to provide storm totals along with average recurrence intervals, which in some locations exceeded a 1-in-1000 year event. Hurricane Matthew impacted some of the same areas from the October 2015 flooding event described by the SCSCO in a separate interactive journal article released last year (dnr.sc.gov/flood2015). MetStat® assisted with that analysis as well.
