Kossuth county and the surrounding area possibly received more rainfall, 10.1 inches, during the month of May than in any -previous year during the same month, according to Weatherman Wayne Johnson at the Algona airport. The 10.1 figure is the Algona total and may have varied slightly around the county. For instance, almost a foot of rain was measured during the period in Palo Alto county, just wes-t,of Kossuth. Weather records here are rather incomplete, due , to t)ie fact several different men hav6 kepf the facts and figures down through the years, but May, 1958 was undoubtedly one of the wettest months of May in his- tory, ^ . Compared with 1958, the county was literally drenched if* raiti, Hardly any rainfall, from ofte- half inch to an inch, was registered a year ago In some areas. Here are the days, 15 of them, and the amounts of rain received ofi those days in May: May 3 : May 4 . j—*- May S -.».——^.^— iMayi 8 ...* May 7 „.-..—» *.*. May 8 May 10 .*—-— May 11 May 18 - Tr.

Backed up sanitary sewers and flooded lowlands also provided plenty of problems. Workmen are still busily repairing bridges which were washed out a couple of weeks ago and city workmen are attempting to locate the cause Of some of Algona's sewer problems so they can be remedied in time for the next stormy period, t Total property damage during the month from the repeated rain and hail storms undoubtedly .amounted to hundreds of thousands of dollars." Crops, including corn and beans, were drown* ed'out in many low-spots and some .other flooded land'still hasn't been planted. Pasturelandi is thriving on the wealth of water.
