Death Valley is renowned for setting heat records, but on Sunday, Tropical Storm Hilary drenched the region with 2.2 inches of rain, setting a new mark for the wettest day ever recorded there.
That is the average yearly rainfall, according to the National Weather Service.
Due to the risk of flash flooding and mud and debris flows, Death Valley National Park remained closed on Monday. Traveling around the park can be challenging even when it reopens. Park officials say some highways’ shoulders have been eroded or undercut.
It was the wettest August day in Palm Springs, San Diego, and downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, breaking the previous record.
In San Bernardino County’s Upper Mission Creek, where 13 inches of rain fell, Hilary’s highest rainfall total was measured.
