The rainstorm of 29 to 31 July 2006 which gave exceptionally heavy rains and caused intense floods all over the Gujarat region has been examined. It has been found that this rainstorm had its areal extension over more than 200,000 km2. The rain depths obtained by this rainstorm for 1 to 3 days were compared with other most severe rainstorms of the Gujarat region. This study has shown that although the rain depths yielded by this rainstorm were comparatively higher for the duration of 1 to 3 days, the rainstorm was not that intense when compared to the most severe rainstorm of 1-3 July 1941 which occurred over south Gujarat - North Konkan region.
