Heavy rainfall events becoming more frequent on Big Island, Hawaii

5 febrero 2015

A recent study determined that heavy rainfall events have become more frequent over the last 50 years on Hawai’i Island. For instance, a rare storm with daily precipitation of nearly 12 inches, occurring once every 20 years by 1960, has become a rather common storm event on the Big Island of Hawai’i — returning every 3-5 years by 2009.
