How Much Rain Did Danbury and Other Local Towns Get This Weekend
Luke Combs said it best in one of his latest hits...."When It Rains, It Pours". Nothing could be closer to the truth this past weekend as we saw record rainfall in our area.
It's not that often that our area see's a steady rain over a 24 hour period, but that's exactly what happened this past Sunday into Monday morning.
So just how much rain fell in the local region, and what area's saw the most rainfall.
According to patch.com, the heaviest rains over the weekend in Connecticut were seen in Westport and Shelton, according to statistics from the National Weather Service.
As far as individual towns go, Danbury's rainfall totals have been recorded at 4.31 inches, two readings in Bethel came in at 4.47 and 4.12 inches of rain, Brookfield received 4.1 inches of rain.
In Dutchess County Wingdale picked up the most with 3.77 inches, Dover Plains recorded 2.70 inches, and Fishkill got 2.60 inches.
Just remember these figures are not yet official, but amounts should not change too much when the final numbers come out.
Seems like the end of October has been packing some strong storms with a punch over the last decade. In 2011 we got the late October snow storm that snapped trees and branches and left hundreds of thousands without power. Then a year after that we got hit by Super Storm Sandy.
This latest storm over the weekend, which happened to be on the fifth anniversary of Super Storm Sandy, also left hundreds of thousands without power in Connecticut and New York, it delayed Metro North Trains, and forced schools in the area to either close or delay.
