Madhya Pradesh has been receiving heavy to very heavy rains during the past few days. So much so that many cities have been witnessing rainfall in three digits. Satna is one such city which has been receiving extremely heavy rain for three consecutive days.

During the last 21 hours from 8:30 am on Thursday, Satna recorded a whopping 244 mm of rain. The rainy tale doesn’t end here. While the city recorded 131 mm of rain on Tuesday, a whopping 277 mm of rainfall was observed on Wednesday.

Euler’s Formula
