Torrential rainfall pattern to continue across parts of the eastern U.S. (Photos)

The Fourth of July was a day for celebration across the U.S. Independence Day (origin date 1776) featured parades, backyard barbeques and fireworks displays in most locales. Throughout Arizona, but especially in Prescott, it was also a day to remember the firefighters who perished while fighting the Yarnell Hill wildfire.

Remnants of Dorian Are Heading Out To Sea

Early this Sunday morning (Aug. 4, 2013), Dorian’s remnants were located about 200 miles south of the North Carolina coast and moving northeast out into the open Atlantic.
