New home record for me, 1.8" in three thunderstorms taking about six hours with downpours interrupted by about two hours of sunshine between each 30 minute storm.

We had a similar oddly intense storm Saturday here, but not that much.

South India Hit by Flooding


https://dw.com/en/south-india-hit-by-fl ... a-49964319

Monsoons in southern India have devastated the state of Kerala, with 22,000 people forced to leave their homes. Floods last year were reported to be the worst in a century.

... States across India have been badly affected by floods in the last week — at least 38 people have been reported dead and 200,000 moved to safety in the western states of Goa, Maharashtra and Karnataka.

Experts have warned that deforestation and increasing urbanization were at fault for the rising waters, as well as bad management of the dams across India.

... Officials warned that fuel shortages were widespread in districts which were cut off from larger cities. They also said that hundreds of villages in Maharashtra were lacking drinking water and electricity.

Floods hit Kerala in 2018. More than 200 people were killed in the disaster last August, which affected over 5 million Indians.

FSA Bulletin - Report: Farmers Prevented from Planting Crops on More than 19 Million Acres

Agricultural producers reported they were not able to plant crops on more than 19.4 million acres in 2019, according to a new report released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). This marks the most prevented plant acres reported since USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) began releasing the report in 2007 and 17.49 million acres more than reported at this time last year.

Of those prevented plant acres, more than 73 percent were in 12 Midwestern states, where heavy rainfall and flooding this year has prevented many producers from planting mostly corn, soybeans and wheat.
