IMD latest forecast: Heavy rain expected in these 3 states including Himachal Pradesh and UP from October 6.
New Delhi: Monsoon may be at the last stage of farewell but the chances of rain still remain. According to the latest forecast of the Meteorological Department, from October 6, once again, heavy rain is expected in three states including Himachal Pradesh. The Meteorological Department has predicted heavy rains in Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh including Himachal Pradesh. This round of rain is being estimated to last not for a single day but for two-three. This time in Himachal Pradesh, the monsoon has caused a lot of damage to both life and property. In Himachal Pradesh this year, there has been double the devastation in accidents due to heavy rains as compared to last year.
According to the Meteorological Department, there is a possibility of heavy rain again from 6 October in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh. This period of heavy rain is expected to continue for the next 2-3 days from October 6. According to the Meteorological Department, during the next 3-4 days, most parts of East and Northeast India may receive heavy rainfall. However, in other states including Himachal, it is slowly taking farewell. But even at the time of farewell, it scares people.
Himachal Pradesh has received heavy rains throughout the monsoon season. At the same time in Rajasthan too, this time the rain has broken the records of decades. In Himachal, this time there was a loss of more than Rs 2154 crore as compared to last year. In the year 2021, there was a loss of property worth 1118.02 crores in Himachal Pradesh due to rain. However, due to no rain for the last three-four days, the residents of Himachal breathed a sigh of relief. But now once again the warning of heavy rain has increased the concern of the people.
The Meteorological Department had predicted last week that the monsoon would depart from North India by the end of September. At some places, the monsoon has duly bid farewell. But even after that the warning of heavy rain is intimidating. In Rajasthan too, the monsoon had created a furore in Bharatpur district of eastern Rajasthan before the farewell. There, more than 600 mm of rain in a single day made the farmers and the common man cry.
In Himachal this time from June 29 to September 27, 406 people have died in road accidents with incidents of floods, landslides and cloudbursts. At the same time 15 people are still missing. During this entire monsoon season, about 731 people were injured due to various calamities. About 868 domesticated cattle also died in these accidents.
