USS Olympia To Move From Philadelphia, Kelly Drive Fatality, Rainfall Records in Philadelphia

The USS Olympia, a one-of-a-kind steel cruiser from the Spanish American War may find a new home soon. The Philadelphia anchored ship has interest from a couple of groups that want to move the vessel and convert it into a museum. A private donor in South Carolina has pledged $34 million to the effort. Another group wants to move the Olympia to Vallejo, California north of San Francisco.

The heavy rains yesterday may have had an impact on an accident on Kelly Drive that killed the 21 year old female driver when her car plunged into the rain swollen Schuylkill River. A 31 year old male passenger in the car was able to free himself and swim to shore. He told investigators a car veered into their lane forcing their vehicle to swerve and ended up in the river.

Yesterday’s rainfall set a record for rainfall making it the wettest day in Philadelphia history. Between Sunday afternoon and 3 am today, 8.26 inches of rain fell at Philadelphia International Airport. The previous record was 6.63 inches of rain fell September 16th, 1999 during Tropical Storm Floyd. July rainfall is now at 13 inches, shattering the monthly total of 10.42 inches set in 1969.

The Phillies are off tonight and host the San Francisco Giants tomorrow.

Sunny today. 82 in Center City.
