This is just amazing.
Officials say that more than 26 inches of rain fell in Mumbai on Tuesday.
One weather official said conditions were particularly bad because the rain had coincided with high tides.
Twenty. Six. Inches. It's pretty serious — at least 200 people dead by drowning or mudslides.
The Guinness World Records doesn't mention the greatest daily rainfall, but it lists the highest monthly total at 366 inches (also in India) — in July 1861.
It's about to rain here, but not 26 inches worth.
ADDENDUM: Our rainfall for July was 10 inches above normal on the 15th — about an inch short of the record (for here), and the month only half gone. But Mumbai got twice that amount in a day. You can tell I'm still boggled about it.
