    According to http://wmo.asu.edu/, this Phillipine event doesn’t rank on the rainfall records list. More rain fell in a 3 day period in 2007, But 6 of 8 rainfall records occurred in or before 1966 , 47 years ago. 154.7″ fell in 3 days and 191.7″ fell in 4 days in the 2007 rainfall event in Cratère Commerson, La Réunion. Not sure if this is correct or not, but there it is, in an effort for accuracy.

      I am sure Jimmy or Phil will be happy to fabricate one for you. Maybe Dessler can find one in his book if fairy tales! It is a travesty that one is not handy for Kevin! ;-) °c
