Swamped in September

in Big Cypress National Preserve from 1980 to present

Monthly rainfall, as averaged throughout Big Cypress Nat'l Preserve, topped ten inches for the first time since July 2013 and before that in August 2010.

In other words, it was the third rainiest month in seven years.

They are shown on the chart as the black dots.
