PENDLETON - More than half an inch of rain fell Sunday in downtown Pendleton, setting a record for the day, more than triple the previous mark.

Daily rainfall records also were set in Condon and Moro.

In Pendleton, the rain gauge at the downtown fire station measured .53 of an inch. The previous record was .17 of an inch, set Sept. 30, 1918.

At Moro, the National Weather Service recorded .35 of an inch Sunday. That was more than double the .17 of an inch recorded there Sept. 30, 1951.

In Condon, Sunday's precipitation totaled .25 of an inch, up slightly from the .21 of an inch that fell there Sept. 30, 2000.

The National Weather Service has maintained weather records in downtown Pendleton since 1890, and at Moro and Condon since 1928.
