much needed update to calm nerves for mumbaikars

Good article...


Young readers please have a look 'how cyclone vayu was formed'

GUJ schools declare holiday, navy on alert!

We see huge climate changes every year Arabian sea is hosting more cyclones during start and end of SWM. This leads to delay in retreat of SWM, Western disturbances are becoming more and more strong, frequent, longer duration - northern India, Rajasthan, Gujarat is becoming wetter.
True or not but south east India specially south Andhra Pradesh (Rayalseema,Anantapur,Chittor,Cuddpah) and many parts of northern+central Tamil Nadu, south east interior Karnataka are becoming deserts. Continuous droughts due to failure of North east monsoons and more important no low pressure systems are entering these regions. All go to Orissa or north east states.

IMD issues red alert for Gujarat extreme torrential rains! Seems GUJ may receive its 20-25% SWM quota...

Other side Maharashtra will complete its last phase of 50 crore tree plantation this year! Great achievement for green initiative and reducing carbon footprint.

2019 SWM seems to have violated all theories of monsoon.
Monsoon hardly touched Karnataka, has not even given any drops to Andhra Pradesh forget about Tamil Nadu - very weak onset for Kerala/ Sri Lanka (not like extreme widespread 3 digit figures on successive days). But cyclone forms over Arabian sea and takes away all moisture to north, Gujarat, Rajisthan - such rogue anomalies are increasing every year. Same happens with NEM - system move to Orissa or NE states instead of SE India.
