Dig Baton Rouge

August was the rainiest month in BR since 1907

Many called the torrential rain in August “historic,” but maybe they didn’t know how right they were. The Advocate reports that August was Baton Rouge’s rainiest month since May 1907, 109 years ago.

August gave us 30.04 inches of rain, but in May 1907, the record was 23.73, according to The Advocate.

“We are at an inch a day, which is mind blowing,” said Barry Keim, state climatologist, according to The Advocate. “We know this is the wettest month ever in Baton Rouge and it’s not even close.”
