Severe storms moved through the Miami Valley Saturday night prompting tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings. Not only did these storms bring the threat of damaging winds, but the potential for flooding rain.
According to Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs, twenty-four hour rain totals across the region mostly ranged between 1 to a little more than 2 inches.
The Dayton International Airport registered 1.52 inches of rain as of 1:50am June 16, 2019, breaking the previous record daily rainfall of 1.26 inches set in 1949. The official totals will be determined later today and will likely be higher than what was originally reported.
