PRELIMINARY data indicates that this event is the 4th wettest tropical cyclone to affect the state of Florida and by far the wettest for east central Florida. A maximum rainfall total of 27.65 occurred 8 miles NW of Melbourne. The previous rainfall record for a tropical cyclone in the region was set in 1950, when Hurricane King dumped 15.44" of rain on Patrick Air Force Base near Cape Canaveral. Hurricane Wilma of 2005 holds third place--it dumped 13.26" on Kennedy Space Center.
