Goa witnesses 8% surplus rainfall so far

PANAJI: With more than a month and a half left for the culmination of the monsoon, the total seasonal rainfall touched 2,384.2mm (93.8 inches), sustaining a modest surplus of 8% on Sunday morning.
Though the rainfall was rather heavy only in Sakhali, other centres recorded light to moderate rainfall. Most places in Goa are likely to witness rainfall during the next two days.

The meteorological centre forecast light to moderate rain at most places in Goa on Wednesday and Thursday and at many places on the subsequent two days.
The warning for fishermen not to venture out to sea, which had been effective for more than a week, has been lifted with the rough sea calming down quite a bit.
Mormugao is still leading other centres, including Valpoi with a total of 2,800 mm (110.2 inches) of rainfall recorded in the port town till Sunday morning.
Valpoi, which is usually the wettest place in Goa, has received 2,117.5mm (83.3 inches) so far and is last on the list among all 13 centres. Panaji has recorded 2,383.8mm.
Paddy crops have not faced any problems during the season as the total has remained above normal level with a surplus throughout the season.
