Something is wrong. Numbers like 112, 120, 150 when areas all around are recording 40, 50 and 60 cms. No green patch or small hill can explain this.

Finally some rains in store for Karnataka and Kerala. This monsoon is giving good pleasant surprises. Extremely required rains for this part of the country. Hurray monsoon 2016.

Rains are badly required in Cauvery catchment areas - dakshin kannada - KAR deficiency is > 50%. 50% of crops destroyed due to drought. Only rains for next 3 months can ease tension between TN/KAR - main concern what will be duration and quantum- for cauvery to fill requires consistent 3 digit daily figures. First UAC since june!
