Record no match for Hazel

Toronto Star - - NEWS -

Re Rain­fall breaks record set in 1953, May 25 I read with in­ter­est re­porter Emily Fearon’s dis­cus­sion with cli­ma­tol­o­gist Dave Phillips about the so-called record daily rain­fall on May 25. I know Phillips is old enough to re­mem­ber Hur­ri­cane Hazel in 1954, which dumped more than twice that amount of rain­fall in just three hours. Re­cent rain­fall pales in com­par­i­son to what fell that dread­ful day. John N. An­der­son, Thornton, Ont.
