June 2014 was by far the wettest month ever in Sioux Falls.

The National Weather Service says the 13.70 inches of rain we had last month broke the old record for June by more than five inches.

It was set in 1984 with 8.43 inches.

Last month was also the wettest month Sioux Falls has seen since record-keeping began in 1893.

The old record was set in May 1898, when 9.42 inches fell.
