Description A small and closely-spaced network of three to seven rapid response (4-s) rainfall intensity gages has been used to measure intense, short duration rain showers on the windward (eastern) coast of Hawai'i Island. During a one year, intensive monitoring period, 54 events were recorded with rainfall intensities greater than 95 mm/hr on at least one gage. Four of these events had peak rainfall, rates greater than 250 mm/hr. The 54 events were analyzed in an attempt to derive some properties...
