Lloró is a municipality an toun in the Chocó Depairtment, Colombie. It claims the seicont warld record for heichest average annual precipitation wi 12,717 mm (501 in)[1][2] efter López del Micay which haulds the record wi 12,892.4 mm (508 in).[3] The rainfaw data wis measured in its Agricultural Farm, managed bi the Varsity o Bogotá, atween 1952 an 1989. If accurate, that wad mak it the wettest place in the warld.[4] The Spainyie verb llorar "tae cry" can be uised as a metaphor for rain an aw, an sae lloró can mean "It rained". Housomeivver, this is no the oreegin o the name; the toun is namit for Gioró, a pre-Columbie indigenous chief.
