A Mystery

Of course, everyone on this board has heard of Harvey, and how it's the biggest, baddest rainstorm in US History.

But how does it rate among the biggest rainstorms in history, around the world?

Not so big. Not even the biggest happening right now!

Mumbai, India is experiencing much worse flooding than North Americans can even imagine. The area gets Monsoons most years, but this year is truly exceptional. This summer, floods in the area have killed over 1,000 people so far, and many more than that are missing. And a weak infrastructure along with almost non-existent building regulation have made the situation even worse.

Normal rainstorms, Hurricanes, etc. happen all the time, but what has caused these two to be so huge?
And how could two such extreme events be happening at exactly the same time?

'tis a mystery...
