I wonder how these totals were measured.
Large efficient tipping bucket and/or radar?

A very large non-tipping bucket might give the accuracy needed.

Default Typhoon Hagibis in Japan: colossal rainfall

What is even more staggering is that half a metre of rain in a day is nowhere near record breaking

What puzzles me is, how reliable is the catchment of these large raingauges when
you have horizontal rain in these extreme wind conditions?

Probably not very reliable but, even if there is a plus/minus 10-20%
error it's still a heck of a lot of rain.

The rainfall for the Coverack storm was originally based on 2 non tipping buckets in peoples garden, basic but nothing to go wrong. The subsequent radar estimate was close.
