India..Dams release water after heavy rainfall.

This story out of Maharashtra, India.

Maharashtra was among the wetter places in India on Wednesday with triple digit rainfall falling on parts of the state in 24hrs. Records taken from some 95 India Meteorological Dept. show the from Tuesday morning to Wednesday morning Maharashtra ‘s Met received more rainfall than all others.

Of the 10 rainiest cities in India the Maharashtra region had 9. the cities of Vasai, Matheran, Dahanu, and Mumbai recorded the highest volume. In Ottawa we have had our fair share of rain, but these cities in India recorded some 300mm in each place. 30 cms of rain in 24 hours. Close to 37 stations in Konkan-Goa and 2 in Central Maharishtra recorded triple digit rainfall between Tuesday and Wednesday morning.

I can only imagine what those volumes would look like here.
