Sunday set record for rainfall

 Posted: 3:30 PM March 10, 2014

Sunday's heavy rains hit a new record for March 9 in Medford, raising stream flows throughout Southern Oregon but causing no reports of flood damage, authorities said.

The National Weather Service measured 1.38 inches of rain Sunday at the Medford airport, easily eclipsing that day's record of .59 inches set in 1947, according to the weather service.

The only report of any flooding was a backup of Little Butte Creek water along a wayside just upstream of where it flows under Highway 62 in Eagle Point, according to the weather service.

Some minor flooding, however, was reported along the Southern Oregon coast and in California's western Siskiyou County, the weather service reports.
