Asad 72 See 11:82 and the corresponding note [114].

Asad 73 Or, in the past tense: "dire was the rain upon those who had been warned" - in which case this sentence would refer specifically to the sinful people of Sodom and Gomorrah. However, it is much more probable that its purport is general (see note [115] on the last sentence of 11:83). Zamakhshari's interpretation of the above sentence is analogous to mine.
