August Rainfall Breaks 144 Kansas Records
08/11/2013

The recent rainfall in Kansas has shattered records across the state and has helped ease drought conditions in some sections.

Mary Knapp, state climatologist, said that in the first nine days of August, 144 daily precipitation records were broken across the state.

Four of those records were in Hutchinson, including a 6-inch rainfall on Aug. 4 that broke the record for the amount of daily rainfall for any day in August. The Hutchinson News reports the previous record was set last year when 3.3 inches of rain fell on Aug. 25, 2012.

Knapp also said, however, that when the ground is dry, it can't quickly soak up the water, which increases flooding.
