Abstract

The rainstorm of 1-5 July 1941 which caused exceptionally heavy rains over the coastal belt of north Konkan-south Gujarat has been analysed. The centre of this rainstorm was at Dharampur (Surat district of Gujarat state) which recorded the highest one-day rainfall of 987 mm on 2 July 1941. The areal rain depths obtained from this rainstorm for durations of one to three days over different sized areas were found to exceed the highest areal rain depths obtained in India.
