Is Mumbai in for the fastest 2000 mms ever ? Will it beat the previous record of 60 days this year ?
The total today stands at 1927 mms...Short this year by only 73 mms and 7 days to go to beat the record for fastest ever total of 2000 mms !
Well, let's see, the wettest July ever for Scruz was in 2014 when July recorded 1469 mms in the month.
