MACON, Ga. (AP) -- As North Carolina's coastal residents endure a holiday deluge from Tropical Storm Arthur, some residents of Georgia are remembering their own wet, windy and deadly Independence Day of 1994.<br />
It's been 20 years, but meteorologist Walt Zaleski said he won't forget issuing flood warning after flood warning for Tropical Storm Alberto, which was that season's first named storm, just like Arthur.<br />
Zaleski recalled for the Macon Telegraph ( http://bit.ly/1ruuCcg ) that the storm began basically as a disappointing damper for July 4 festivities. But then the storm basically stopped, leaving a 250-mile wide system of torrential downpours hovering over the state for 36 hours.<br />
Some places got 27 inches of rain during that period. Statewide, 31 people died as rivers swelled and burst more than 200 dams.
