  2. Cloudburst, a sudden, very heavy rainfall, usually over a small geographical are and over a brief period of time.


  3. The rain from a cloudburst is usually a shower with a fall rate equal to or greater than 100 mm per hour


  4. If these currents suddenly cease, the entire amount of water descends on to a small area with catastrophic force all of a sudden, causing mass destruction.


  5. During a cloudburst, more than 2 cm of rain may fall in a few minutes. They are called 'bursts probably because it was believed earlier that clouds were solid masses full of water.


  6. One of the major disasters from a cloudburst in India occurred in 2013 in Uttarakhand and claimed more than 5700 lives


  7. Cloudbursts are especially common in mountainous areas probably because the warm air currents of a thunderstorm tend to follow the upward slope of a mountain.
