When it Rains, it Pours...

In Karwar, when it Rains it POURS !! The South-West Monsoons generally arrive in the 1st week of June, and make Karwar their Home till mid September. Moisture-bearing winds come from the west, and yearly rainfall averages 3000 mm on the coast, and as high as 5000 mm. Karwar, with the Arabian sea on one side and Western Ghat - Mountains on all other three sides, is turned into a Nesting Place for the Clouds, the Clouds literally descending on Karwar mountains. However, Reports say that the amount of Rainfall has been decreasig over the years, but to any person in Karwar during the Monsoons, these Reports appear frivolous, as he is busy dealing with the Fury of the Monsoons.....

News from The Hindu - THE FURY of the monsoon has been all too evident along the west coast in recent days, with Karwar in Karnataka receiving over 40 cm rain in a single day...... Source
