Thanks to Vagaries for a continuous update through the cyclone. Possibly the strongest tail ever seen in a cyclone,
Those rainfall numbers are staggering. And most of it happened in a span of 10 hours. It is remarkable how Mumbai repeatedly soaks up such numbers and comes out not so badly. While all of us criticize the monsoon flooding, I think very few cities in the world can handle such rainfall or even half of it. And to handle it in May, when not yet fully prepared is even more creditable.
Thank you team vagaries for all regular updates. Rajesh sir, why it's still raining Wednesday morning in in Mulund north of Mumbai when cyclone has reached Rajashthan. How long tail of this cyclone is?
