Extraordinary Desert Rain !!
And the Rains continue to lash Gujarat !
Sure, I did mention yesterday that there is 1 more day of rains there, but least imagined it would be with such vigour !
Kutch and Jamnagar districts bore the brunt.
Heaviest amonst the Gujarat rains as on Tuesday morning ( 24 hrs) were:
Kutch : Abdasa:103 mms, Anjar: 190 mms, Bhachau: 173 mms, Bhuj: 73 mms, Gandhidham: 100 mms,
Mandvi*: 449 mms, Mundra:116 mms,Nakhatrana: 95 mms, Rapar:104 mms
* Mandvi we discussed yesterday had recieved 124 % of its seasonal rain. But with another whopping 449mms, its got more than 250 %, with all the season's rain in a day yesterday !!
These are phenomenal for a day's rain. C'mon, this is desert territory, not a coastal region.
Kutch, has by now measured 97 % of its season's rain till Tuesday morning.
And another rain battered region,Jamnagar:
The 24 hrs rainfall as on Tuesday morning:
Jamnagar city: 466 mms,Jodia: 212 mms, Khambhalia:208 mms,Lalpur:164 mms,Kalyanpur:155 mms and Dwarka :97 mms
This district has by Tuesday recieved 97% of its season's rainfall !
Now, with Mumbai Colaba having reached its season's total, it can afford to adhere to our estimate of 2/3 days of "rest period". Required for "cleaning up" and restoring roads !
Today (Tuesday) morning, the Colaba rains for this season totalled 1923 mms. And the season's normal quota till Setember end is 1920 mms.
So, all in excess now ! I'm not talking about the lakes, mind well !
