Caption: This image shows rainfall totals for the period Aug. 21 to 27, 2012, when Isaac formed and tracked through the northern Caribbean and past south Fla. The most significant rainfall over land in the northeast Caribbean occurred over southwest Haiti and the southern coast of the Dominican Republic where between 120 to around 200 mm (~5 to 8 inches, shown in green and yellow) fell. Prior to Isaac, an upper-level low brought heavy rains over southeastern Florida. The combination of the two resulted in totals over 160 mm (~6 inches, shown in bright green) in central Fla. to as much as 320 mm (~13 inches, shown in purple) over Lake Okeechobee.
