If it felt like the region received a lot of rain between Friday and Sunday night, it is because it did.

The National Weather Service on Monday released storm totals for the period of deary and rainy weather. The weekend storms were enough to cause street flooding, bring down limbs and utility lines, and cancel numerous outdoor events.

Phones buzzed with flood alerts throughout the weekend.

Parts of the Philadelphia region saw as much as 6 inches of rain, but Lower Bucks County fell somewhere between the lowest and highest rainfall totals.

Below are some local rain totals:

• Bristol – 3.60 inches
• Buckingham Township – 3.99 inches
• Doylestown – 3.14 inches
• Furlong – 3.50 inches
• Near Langhorne – 4.28 inches
• Near Langhorne – 4.12 inches
• Langhorne – 4.16 inches
• Northampton Township – 3.46 inches
