Nature strikes with a fury

The western Indian city of Mumbai -- you may know it better as Bombay -- received 37 inches of rain in 24 hours earlier this week. More than half of the area's average annual rainfall accumulated in just 12 hours. Almost 750 people are dead, with the death toll almost certain to rise, and disease could kill more.

Unreal. All the best to India as it recovers from the monsoon.
