Rainfall data Darjeeling district : Jun2012

From the above data, it is evident that where as Kurseong in Darjeeling district received normal rainfall, the towns of Kalimpong and Darjeeling were running deficient in rain for the second consecutive monsoon month. Jaldhaka which is a tiny hamlet in the foothills bordering the Dooars received its heavy quota of rainfall (which it normally does) and Gangtok in Sikkim also reported 40% higher than normal rain.
We have had no major low pressure areas, depressions or cyclones forming in the Bay of Bengal in 2012.
Also no major landslides in the Darjeeling-Sikkim Himalaya in Jun2012.
