“An incredible 7.03” of rain fell in 3 hours on Sept. 8 to the south of D.C. in Ft. Belvoir, Va. According to the National Weather Service in Baltimore/Washington, this has a less than 0.1% chance of happening in a given year, making it a 1000-year rain event.”
Really? Is that all it takes to garner a 1000-year rain event. Seems like these monikers are becoming quite meaningless: Atlanta 2009.
