Local conservation authorities had said this week's forecast rainfall amounts wouldn't be enough to completely end the early-stage drought.
Yesterday alone, some areas received more than a month's worth of rain in a single day, including the Central Experimental Farm, where 92.3 millimetres of rain was recorded. At the Ottawa airport, Wednesday's rainfall totalled 69.4 millimetres.
"A record rainfall for a second day -- the record was 41.1, set in 1969, for a July 25th," said Jill Taylor, 1310 NEWS meteorologist. "No matter how you add it up, a lot of rain for our area."https://www.ottawamatters.com/local-news/rain-shatters-records-but-doesnt-completely-solve-water-woes-996654?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=Email
