Mississippi just had one of its wettest Octobers of the past century.
The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports the state had an average of 9.64 inches of rain in October. That's just 1/100th of an inch below the record of 9.65 inches, set in 1984.
The state's normal rainfall in October is 6.58 inches.
Luigi Romolo, regional climatologist at the Southern Regional Climate Center in Baton Rouge, La., says the this October might be the wettest one or tied for the wettest, depending on how the numbers are rounded.
He says the difference between the 1984's record and this year's rainfall was "basically a couple of drops."
