High Tide Dates – 2011 Monsoon in Mumbai
27 High Tide dates for the coming monsoon.
Floods in Mumbai are attributable to simultaneous occurrence of rainfall and high tides. If, the rainfall is in excess of 200 mm in a day (24 hrs), Floods can occur anytime irrespective of tides. However, if there is moderate rainfall but the tide is in excess of 4.50 meters at the same time, the city of Mumbai is likely to get flooded.
