Southern Alberta floods

(4:34) On June 20, 2013 Calgary in Canada experienced record one-day rainfall with 45 mm falling, breaking the previous record of 35.1 mm in 1964. The heavy rain combined with a partially frozen landscape unable to soak up the deluge, caused extensive flooding in Southern Alberta.

45mm falling in a day is nothing. The Lake District in the UK gets 100+mm in a day every couple of years. Don't you mean 450mm in a day... or something like that?

Latest comment: I worked in the Woodland Hills in the far west end of Los Angeles County in 1992. One day - one day - we got over 150mm of rainfall! Never saw anything like it before or since! LINK
