Rainfall data July 2011

Since most landslides in our area are rain induced, keeping a tab of the rainfall in the Darjeeling district is one of our roles. 
In Jul2011 in keeping with the clear trend which is emerging,  Kurseong received the heaviest rain followed by Darjeeling and then Kalimpong. Mercifully, few landslides ( see here and here )were recorded and there were no fatalities.
Starting August we will include the rainfall data of Gangtok also in the above chart.
