Parts of the Randstad area got more rain on Wednesday than usually falls in the entire month of September. Between 40 and 70 millimeters of rain fell in Zuid-Holland, Noord-Holland and Utrecht on Tuesday, according to Weeronline. Nieuwkoop got a massive 130 mm or rain.
It's still unclear what the damage is after Sunday's downpour. Individuals don't seem to have suffered extensive damage, but for farmers it may be another week before the full extent of the damage they suffered will be clear, according to the Association of Insurers.
