Abstract: This paper examines point-rainfall characteristics of intense storms in Kansas. Hourly rainfall records were analyzed for 1006 intense storms selected from some 1800 station-years of data. Distributions were developed for seven parameters characterizing the hyetographs and antecedent conditions for these storms. Representative results are presented and design implications are discussed.
