In the Indian Ocean: Tropical cyclone 02a (Vayu), located approximately 180 nm south of Karachi, Pakistan, is tracking northeastward at 12 knots.
Mongolia – On 15 June 2019, heavy precipitation was expected to run across the country. At around 15:00 hours, torrential rain poured on central area of the country including Ulaanbaatar city and nearby provinces including Tuv province.

Canada – With once-in-a-century floods two years in a row, residents and communities grapple with a new reality and tough choices: rebuild or pack up and leave? After back-to-back historic floods along the St. John River watershed, the Nauwidgewauk community and others like it in New Brunswick are being redrawn by backhoes, demolition equipment and government officials — who are now enforcing flood-plain building restrictions that went ignored for decades. People in the province are talking about climate change in a way they never would have a few years ago. For the second straight year, hundreds of homes were evacuated and long stretches of the Trans-Canada Highway were underwater. Even officials who manage flood response seemed surprised at the level of destruction this spring.
UK – Residents in at least 590 homes in Wainfleet and Thorpe Culvert, in Lincolnshire, have been told to leave as waters continued to surge this weekend. The town first flooded on Wednesday after more than two months’ worth of rain fell in two days, causing the River Steeping to burst its banks. On Friday, three RAF helicopters dropped 270 one-tonne sandbags in an attempt to repair the bank.
