Colaba battered by heaviest one-day rain in August since 1974


The heaviest one-day in August in 47 years in Mumbai, home to India’s financial markets and the central bank, inundated large parts of the mega city and disrupted businesses and services. The Colaba weather station recorded 33.2 centimeters (13 inches) of rainfall in the 24 hours through 8:30 am Thursday, the highest downpour for a single day in August since at least 1974, according to the India Meteorological Department. More spells of moderate to heavy rainfall are forecast for Thursday, accompanied by strong winds of as much as 80 kilometers per hour.

“It’s not a very regular thing” to witness intense showers continuing for several days, KS Hosalikar, deputy director general at the weather department’s center, said late on Wednesday.
