Three Years of Rain Falls in 12 Hours as Deadly Storm Causes Flooding, Mudslides in Chile!
At least six people are dead in Chile after a potent weekend storm brought unusual rains to Chile's Atacama desert region, while the coast was battered by destructive waves and strong winds.

Antofagasta, Chile, saw 0.55 inches (14 mm) of rain in just 12 hours Saturday into Sunday. That may not sound like much, but it's actually more than three years worth of rain for this town where the average annual rainfall is just 0.14 inches (3.8 mm).

The unusual rains caused deadly flooding and mudslides just to the north of Antofagasta in the town of Tocopilla. According to Chile's National Office of Emergency of the Interior Ministry, at least three people are dead and one more is missing due to the flooding.

This is the second time in 2015 that this part of Chile has seen unusual rain amounts. In March, Antofagasta saw an even heavier bout of rainfall with 0.96 inches (24.4 mm) falling during the 24 hour period ending at 8 a.m. EDT March 26. That bout of rainfall also resulted in deadly flooding and was named our strangest weather event of 2015, so far.
