Philadelphia Inquirer Article detailing the “violent rain storm”

This appears to be an abnormal series of rainstorms for the East Coast. On April 6, 1864 The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that the “rain storm continues without intermission.” “Effects of the Storm,” The Philadelphia Inquirer, April 6, 1864.
