record breaking weather

"Hong Kong - Weather experts said June was Hong Kong's wettest ever month after 1,346.1 millimetres of rain was recorded in the territory, according to figures released by the Hong Kong Observatory on Monday.
The observatory said June's record broke the previous monthly rainfall record of 1,241.1 millimetres set in May 1889. As a result, June 2008 became the wettest month since records began in 1884.
The heavy rain was associated with the active south-westerly winds over the South China coastal areas and severe tropical storm Fengshen hit the territory on June 25. (dpa)" Source
