This is absolutely shocking. Kerala is struggling with floods and disaster of the highest proportion. And here we have someone talking about dam levels and water to Tamil Nadu. Most insensitive I have ever come across.

Seems Mumbai heavy rains are back with bang! Navi mumbai heavy rains!

Extreme rains are always boon(giving water, filling dams after years of drought) and hardships(in terms of loss of life). Maharashtra ghat areas: it is normal to receive 400-600mm on continuous successive days(shirgaon,Tamhini,Lamaj,kitwade). July 2017,September 2013 Gujarat floods: 300-500mm continuous successive days. July 2017 Rajasthan floods: Mt Abu received 700mm on successive days. Aug 2018 Orissa floods: due to successive bay lows. It does not come as surprise if Kerala receives(south west coast) rain after consecutive drought years.
