Abstract

Data are presented for the most intense storm observed during a 3-yr recording period (1967–1969) on the Crawford Hill rain gage network at Holmdel, N.J. Point rain rates in excess of 270 mm hr−1 (10.6 in. hr−1) were observed. A total of about 280 million gallons of water fell in a 15-min interval over an area of 32.3 km2 (12.5 mi2).
