The second of two heavy rains fell on this date in 1936, resulting in the worst all-New England flooding on record. The combination of rainfall of 3 to 6 inches, and melting of a water-laden snow-pack forced the Connecticut River to its highest level of record in most locations. Quite dramatic was the water flow at the Vernon Dam, where the water was 11 feet higher than the top of the dam!
