15% of year’s rain in 1 day

After playing truant for a week, monsoon has hit the city with full force, bringing 15 per cent of the annual rain expectation on Sunday itself. The rainfall was recorded at 11 cm in GHMC’s West Zone and 5 cm in the Central Zone on Sunday, against less than 2 cm rain recorded on the first day of the monsoon last year. This is a strong beginning of the monsoon, civic officials said.
