Abstract

Heavy rains of 4–6 inches (∼10–15 cm) during July 1–2, 1987, caused flooding that resulted in damages estimated at $30 million in north central Ohio. No record high discharges were reported for the streams involved, however. In Minneapolis, Minn., where precipitation had been below normal through mid-July, 8.96 inches (22.36 cm) of rain fell in 24 hours during July 23–24, exceeding the 100-year 24-hour rainfall by ∼3 inches (∼7 cm). Total precipitation for the week ending July 25 was 14.49 inches (36.81 cm), which was double that recorded for January 1 through July 18, 1987.
