New Delhi: It is rightly said that everyone has seen and heard the magic of God, sometimes it is sunny and sometimes it is cloudy. This line is absolutely appropriate for the weather conditions of two capitals. On one hand, the country's capital Delhi, where people are yearning for rain after the torrential rain on June 28, on the other hand, there is Mumbai, which is called the economic capital of the country. The rain here in the last 24 hours between Sunday and Monday has again made a record. After 288 mm of rain, the situation has not yet become normal there. Even today, the Meteorological Department has issued a red alert. It rained in Delhi-NCR this afternoon but it is still insufficient. However, the record of maximum rainfall in a day has been made at both the places. In such a situation, questions are being raised that what has happened to the weather? That too when the IMD had said that this time the monsoon will cover the entire country before time.Mumbai is in a bad condition due to rain
Mumbai received heavy rains from Sunday night to Monday morning. According to data from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), the eastern suburbs received the most rainfall.

Why is it raining so much in Mumbai?
Why does Mumbai have to face such a situation every year? Every year a good rain jams the entire city. The same thing happened between Sunday and Monday. Now let me explain the whole matter to you. Apart from the Arabian Sea, Mumbai is surrounded by four rivers. These rivers are Mithi, Dahisar, Oshiwara and Poisar. All these together make Mumbai more dangerous during monsoon. Talking about Mithi river, it surrounds the entire Mumbai. In such a situation, there is a danger of water overflowing even with a little rain. Due to dense settlement around it, it has a greater impact. This city situated on the seashore is situated very low at many places, while at many places it is at a very high altitude. As soon as the rain starts, the water automatically comes down and starts collecting. Some such areas are Sion, Andheri Metro, Milan Metro and Khar

Delhi received 228 mm of rain on June 28
Like Mumbai, Delhi also made a record of rainfall on 28 June. Delhi was flooded in 24 hours. Delhi had made a record that day too. The southwest monsoon entered Delhi with heavy rain on 28 June. 228 mm of rain fell in 24 hours, most of which occurred between 3 am and 8:30 am. This is the highest rainfall in a day in June in Delhi since 1936. In the last 30 years, the average rainfall in June has been 75.2 mm. 4 people also died due to this heavy rain.

Rain stopped again in Delhi
Monsoon arrived in Delhi early in the morning on 28 June. This time the monsoon arrived late due to which the people of Delhi were very happy and they hoped that this trend would continue but unfortunately this did not happen. From 29 June to 8 July, sometimes the sky was covered with dark clouds and sometimes it was partially cloudy but it did not rain. However, today the weather changed and it rained in Delhi-NCR. The Meteorological Department has issued a yellow alert on 11 July. Apart from this, there are chances of rain till 14 July.
