Landslide Disaster: Cause Effect and Protective Measures in India
Malin landslide - Wikipedia
The South India floods resulted from heavy rainfall generated by the annual northeast monsoon in November—December From October to December each year, a very large area of south India, including Tamil Nadu, the coastal regions of the Andhra Pradesh and the union territory of Puducherry, receives up to 60 percent of its annual rainfall from the northeast monsoon or winter monsoon. The northeast monsoon is the result of the annual gradual retreat of monsoonal rains from northeastern India. Unlike during the regular monsoon, rainfall during the northeast monsoon is sporadic, but typically far exceeds the amount produced by the regular monsoon by up to 90 percent.
