Hope it rains for longer. Shorter rainfall will release heat than quenching it.

Raining here in Whitefield, Bangalore as well. Hope it lasts for atleast a couple of hours and cools things down a bit.

Just read in the newspaper today that "As per Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre, Banaswadi recorded 132mm of rain between 4pm and 4.15pm. Ramamurthynagar received 102mm. Rainfall of 100mm and more in one hour is termed a cloudburst."

The rains have taken away a bit of the heat. Rain is forecasted for later today as well. Not sure how the voter turn out will be impacted with today being election day here in Bangalore.

Heavy rain in Hyderabad which lasted for approximately 2 hours. Now, we will brace ourselves up for the scorching heat.

And looks like it rained fishes, not just cats & dogs. Some folks near our place picked up fishes from the road. A pic of some picked up: they were still alive

I looked up on this - and apparently it can happen. Water-spouts can pick up fishes and these can then end up in rain.

Which city is this from? I understand if this happens near coastal areas or near rivers.

It's been raining in Hyderabad for quite a while (Days) now. At least once a day. One fine evening I went out for a short walk in our colony while it was raining and I felt heartbroken as I saw so many houses just releasing the rain water that has collected on their roofs, straight onto the road.

Roofs have a huge surface area and they collect quite an amount of water. If the house owners spend a little money and build a percolation pit, and release the water into that pit, it will cure the issue of low ground water reserves. My house has had a percolation pit since Day 1 and I'm happy that we never let rainwater go waste because of that Percolation pit.

Rain is the only natural way water can reach the ground. But it is our responsibility to direct it to the ground and not onto the roads.
