Not a great season here in Cyprus for extremes :)

However something is going on in Italy. Here is a video of Milano (my hometown) in the morning of the 8th July after 12 hours of non-stopping intense rainfalls.

I have observed heavy rainfall during the summer monsoon over Mumbai on 26 July 2005 event. It is very unique. The rainfall amount of 944 mm is record amount for a single-day rain event for a megacity (population over 10 million). Mumbai is the most populated city and the commercial capital of India; this rain event caused 409 deaths and an unprecedented loss of $1 billion to the socio-economic sector.

I analysed data (1970-2005) of three stations for detecting trend in extreme temperature and precipitation indices located in Sutlej Basin, N-W Himalayan Region India. I observed increase in frequency and intensity of extreme precipitation indices (Max 1-day precipitation amount,Max 5-day precipitation amount,Very wet days, Extremely wet days, Simple daily intensity index) for station located in higher altitude. However, fall in frequency of wet days were observed for low lying stations in the basin.
Besides, i would like to share a horrible event which I witnessed last year (14-23 June 2013) during my study visit at National Institute of Hydrology, Roorkee in Uttarakhand. This time India saw its worst natural calamities after 2004 tsunami. Flooding triggered by heavy rainfall caused death of 5700 people and loss of 30 billion (INR) in Uttarakhand state of India.
