How big was the Mad River during Hurricane Irene?



The day before Irene hit, the Mad River was trickling through the Moretown measuring station at a little less than 100 cfs, at a river height of 3 feet.

At the peak of the storm, however, the Mad hit a peak of 22,900 cfs and a height of 18.64 feet ... breaking the previous record of 18,400 cfs and 16.34 feet from 1938.
