crops leveled to the ground. (David Ludlum)
...1898...
A two hour thunderstorm deluged Atlanta GA with 4.32 inches of rain. More
than a foot of water flooded Union Depot. Many street car motors burned out
while trying to run through flooded streets. It grew so dark before the

Sheridan WY was drenched with 4.41 inches of rain, an all-time 24 hour
record for that location. Associated flooding washed out 20 miles of
railroad track. (22nd-23rd) (The Weather Channel)

at Minneapolis MN, including 5.26 inches in two hours. Flash flooding
