UPDATE 9/29: Looks like #45012 had waves over 10 feet last night. I saved off some "greatest hits" graphs here.
UPDATE 7 PM: As Eric suggests in the Comments below, check out this webcam to see the waves roll in on Lake Michigan. A seiche, similar to a hurricane's storm surge, is currently ongoing on Lake Erie. The water level at Buffalo, NY is up over 5 feet while at the other end of the Lake Toledo, OH is down 5 feet! Buoy #45005 north of Cleveland is now clocking winds of 43 knots and waves to 8.9 feet. At #45012 on Lake Ontario, 43 knots and waves to 7.9 feet.

Our news story says that conditions will continue to get worse today and tonight:
A storm over the upper Great Lakes will continue to lash portions of the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes today through tonight with high winds and rain. Winds will cause chilly AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures and damage due to toppled trees and power lines. Thousands across the region already had power cut Sunday. Other areas could experience power outages today. Winds will also whip the waters of the Great Lakes into a fury. Waves will be as high as 15 feet on Lake Michigan and over 20 feet on Lake Superior. Conditions will be dangerous for recreational boaters and commercial shipping.
The Atlantic hurricane season of 1996 was a blockbuster season for southeast North Carolina. Could that repeat this season?

The worst flooding this week was in Louisiana, but the unnamed low-pressure system dropped 10 inches of rain in eight states.
Here in Pennsylvania, after experiencing months with almost no rainfall and a complete lack of typical thunderstorm activity, the last 10 days have brought daily rainfall and storms.
What may go down in the record books as "The Great Flood of 2016" is now upon us. Over 30 inches of rain has fallen and thousands have been rescued from the floods.
