    Brymore House, 3/4 miles to the west of Cannington, recorded a rainfall measurement of 9.04 inches at 9am on the 19th August 1924.

    Mr Kendall measured the rain gauge in the presence of two gardeners. About 8.5 inches of this total fell between 3am and 7.30am. Hail accompanied the rain. Thunder was also observed.

    The rain gauge was officially examined for accuracy and exposure and was found to be excellent and could not have been flooded.

    The 24hr total between 9am (GMT) on the 18th August to the 9am (GMT) on the 19th August 1924 was found to be 9.40 inches.

    Our local forcaster on the BBC mentioned this last night.

    He actually said most of the rain fell within 5hrs, over 230mm's.
