A work colleague had a look through the records for Cocos Island:

"Had a feeling Cocos Islands broke some records! They recorded 416.0mm in the 24hrs to 0900 CCT this morning (yestie), which is its wettest day in 105 yrs of records. Previous record was 322.6mm on 6/10/1910. Also in the 72hrs to 0900 CCT this morning Cocos recorded 831.2mm of rain, which is the wettest 3 day rainfall total on record. Previous record was 498.7mm between 20th and 22nd September 1942. So far this month Cocos has recorded 959.2mm, which is now the wettest month on record. Previous record was 886.0mm in July 1908."
