Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram, Monsoon rains

The southwest monsoon has finally set in over Kerala and Lakshadweep

Thiruvananthapuram: The southwest monsoon has finally set in over Kerala and Lakshadweep, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) announced on Wednesday.
K. Santhosh, director at the IMD office here, said: "Good rains are expected in the coming days across the state."
Kerala received good rains on Tuesday also. The IMD said that in view of the strengthening of cross equatorial flow and deepening of westerlies over south Arabian Sea and development of feeble off-shore trough along the Karnataka-Kerala coast, the monsoon was likely to set in by June 9 in Kerala.
The IMD office here warned fishermen that strong winds, occasionally reaching 45-55 km per hour, along and off the Kerala coast and over Lakshadweep were expected for about two days.

Monsoon hits Kerala, Lakshadweep

That is alright and fine. Some other parts of India are looking for rain with need. But then there is other side of this good happening. We are required to be on alert that we are well prepared to meet the contingencies as a consequence of havoc which could be caused by such rains during June to August 2016. This Vedic astrology writer has already on 18 January 2016 , alerted that more care and precautions were called for during summer 2016 until August 2016 from landslides, rain and fires in northern India , some central and southern India including Tamil Nadu, Goa and places leading to Sri Lanka. These alerts were made in article " 2016 - a woeful year for India with slight cheer at the end" published on 18 January 2016 in online magazine These are likely trend predictions not amounting to determinism suggesting that sufficient and appropriate strategy can size up the problems which may arise.
