Statistics of extreme rainfall events over the road network

Short-duration extreme rainfall events have the potential of causing problems with a high-impact for the road infrastructure and its correct operation. This is why national agencies maintaining the road networks are interested in getting a statistical description for severe downpours, so they can manage the current infrastructure and new constructions keeping the chances of being affected by extreme rainfall low. Previous works have tackled this type of analysis providing results for a single point.
