Record Daily Waterfall From Storm In NYC

Records are made to be broken, but they are not usually broken by as much as the daily rainfall record in NYC from yesterday's storm.  The old record was 6.7 inches, the new record set yesterday is 13 inches.  That almost doubles the previous record!!  This is just another example of extreme changes in weather patterns that are being experienced in the US and around the globe.  While NYC broke the rainfall record, many western states are breaking drought records.
