Brahmaputra’s Water Level Rises In Assam Due To Incessant Heavy Rainfall
In Assam’s Dibrugarh, streams of the Brahmaputra surged in level on Monday as a result of persistently heavy rain that led to waterlogging in various areas of the city. Images from Dibrugarh earlier today showed the city to be partially under water.
On Sunday, the India Meteorological Department warned that several regions are likely to experience more intense rain. “Over the following two days, a heavy rainstorm is predicted to persist across Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, West Madhya Pradesh, and East Rajasthan. Throughout the next five days, there will be heavy rain in Tamilnadu and Rayalaseema, and on coastal Andhra Pradesh and Telangana over the next day, “IMD tweeted.
Schools for all students up to class 12 remained closed due to the weather department’s severe rainfall warning for Monday in some districts of Uttar Pradesh.
“Thunderstorm accompanied with lightning is very likely at isolated places over the state from October 9 to 12. Heavy rain is very likely at isolated places over the state on October 10,” said the IMD.
Vehicle travel was hampered by waterlogging and flood water that entered people’s homes, businesses, and the wards of Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, AMU. As Delhi and the NCR were battered by heavy rain all day Sunday, parts of Noida experienced significant waterlogging.
Since Saturday, the city has been battered by nonstop rain, causing major waterlogging. Several areas of Noida, notably the “underpass” in Sector 126, experienced traffic bottlenecks and other delays as a result of the waterlogging, including other portions of Noida.
RK Jenamani, a senior scientist at the India Meteorological Department (IMD), however, predicted on Sunday that rain will not occur in the capital city and its environs beginning on October 10.
India Meteorological Department (IMD) reports that heavy rain fell in the nation’s capital on Saturday and Sunday (October 8 and 9).
At the SFD, Lodhi Road, and Ayaynagar, the reported rainfall in Delhi was 74.3mm, 87.2mm, and 85.2mm, respectively. Also reporting 60 and 64 mm, respectively, were Delhi Ridge and Palam.
From October 10 onward, the national capital would not experience any considerable rainfall, according to the IMD, but drizzling or light rain was possible.
