The Meteorological Department has predicted heavy and heavy rains in several states from September 24, while a yellow alert has been issued for the capital Delhi yesterday.
The monsoon is not only ravaging Delhi-NCR, but also exposing the negligence of the administration. Usually 108.5 mm of rain falls in September and so far 58.5 mm of rain has been recorded. The Meteorological Department has predicted heavy and heavy rain in many states from September 24. A yellow alert has been issued for Delhi yesterday. Heavy rains are also likely in many parts of Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Odisha and Telangana. Orange alert has also been issued in Uttarakhand for heavy rainfall for the next two days. IMD Senior Scientist RK Jenamani says that an orange alert has been issued for Uttarakhand for heavy rainfall till September 25.
The condition of Uttar Pradesh has become miserable due to continuous rains. Further intensification of rain has been predicted in western Uttar Pradesh on September 24, causing fear among both the public and the administration. Several areas of Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh, have been submerged in water for the past few days, due to which people are facing severe problems. It seems that there will be no significant improvement in the situation in the next two or three days.
The condition of ‘Gurugram’, the city of dreams that has made its mark on the world level, also deteriorated in the rain on Friday. Gurugram seemed to have become ‘water gram’. With just 95 mm of rain, the city was flooded. After the rain, waterlogging and traffic jams were witnessed in the entire city. From the sector to the colonies and the larger society, I seem to be flooded. The underpasses built at important intersections of the city by spending crores of rupees are also submerged in water. Worryingly, chances of heavy rain have been indicated on Saturday as well. That is, the restlessness of the people as well as the administration is going to increase.
