“The heavy rains, Behnke said, hit a “narrow corridor” including cities like Romulus, Taylor, Lincoln Park, Dearborn and downtown Detroit.

The 2.1 inches of rain on Tuesday beat the previous April 30 record, 0.97 inches recorded in 1962, and is a full two inches more than the norm for that day, per the National Weather Service. The 5.8 inches of rain recorded in April is more than double the historical norm, which is 2.9 inches.”
