Weather Alert: Red Alert In MP, Rajasthan Heavy Rains In Bengal, Bihar

  • | Saturday | 31st July, 2021

Heavy rainfall in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan. 

IMD has issued a red alert in Madhya Pradesh and eastern Rajasthan as it is supposed to witness heavy rain over the weekend. 

With monsoon wading in the eastern part of India, a well-marked low-pressure area hangs over the state of West Bengal and is expected to move westwards towards Jharkhand and Bihar, bringing heavy rainfall accompanied by thunderstorms and lightning this weekend.

During the past 24 hours, heavy rains lashed the Gangetic plains of West Bengal, leading to inundation in several key parts of the state. Two laborers were killed, at least two others injured, and another four were missing after being swept by the Mamkhola, a rivulet in the Kalimpong hills of north Bengal, as the water level rose due to heavy overnight rains.

Kolkata recorded over 150mm rainfall, with major sections of the city waterlogged throughout the past day.  Moderate to heavy rainfall was also witnessed in the northern parts of Odisha, as well as in Jharkhand.

West Bengal will have no respite yet from the rains, according to the Skymet projections. Moderate to heavy rainfall will occur over south Bihar, Jharkhand, north Chhattisgarh, north Madhya Pradesh, and in parts of Uttar Pradesh over the next two days.
