Nearly 50 inches of rain fell in 24 hours in Haipa, Hawaii! :shock: :o That is 7 inches higher than set in Alvin, Texas on July 25-26, 1979 from Tropical Storm Claudette. The storm responsible was not tropical in origin and it is also mountainous. Harvey by comparison dumped 30 inches of rain in 24 hours with totals of nearly 70 inches!
