No, BBC, Hurricane Hilary Was Not Unprecedented

Climate analyst Paul Homewood: “Hilary is a very similar event to the 1939 tropical storm, El Cordonazo, which followed a similar path and dumped similar amounts of rain…The claims about record rainfall are bogus as well. The BBC focus heavily on “record rainfall” in Palm Springs, but even that is a fake claim.

The 1939 storm was much more devastating, with 5” in Los Angeles…And the devastation from Kathleen in 1976 was even greater…Rainfall from Hilary has not reached anything like the 375mm (14.76″) recorded in 1976.”
