More rain forecast as floods in Northeast worsen


Nearly 2.75 lakh people affected in 7 districts of Assam


The heavens opened up in many parts of the country, triggering flash floods and landslides, while four rain-related deaths were reported from Rajasthan.

Rains poured down in torrents in parts of Himachal Pradesh as well. The State has been hit by a series of landslides over the past few days.

The weatherman has predicted very heavy rains in Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim and Bihar.

A downpour is “very likely” in Arunachal Pradesh, Gangetic West Bengal, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat, Goa, Chhattisgarh and Karnataka.

A downpour in south Rajasthan affected the movement on the Mehsana-Palanpur railway route. Abu Road-Mehsana-Ahmedabad, Ajmer-Ahmedabad-Ajmer passenger trains were cancelled, a railway official said.

In Arunachal Pradesh, incessant heavy rains over the past two days have triggered landslides, damaged houses, water pipelines, roads and hit basic essential services.

The Capital town of Itanagar has been cut off from the rest of the country due to landslides on NH-52 A.

The rainwater has eroded a portion of NH 415 connecting Itanagar and Naharlagun, forcing the administration to divert traffic through the Pappu Nallah-Jullang road. Chief Minister Pema Khandu today directed officials to immediately evacuate people living in vulnerable areas to safer places and ensure adequate stock of ration, medicine and other essential commodities.


In the wake of an IMD warning of heavy to very heavy rainfall, Mr. Khandu appealed to people to stay alert. The southwest monsoon entered parts of Haryana bringing light rain, even as humid weather prevailed in other parts of the State and neighbouring Punjab.

Most parts of Haryana falling in the NCR, including Gurugram, Rohtak, Faridabad, and other places such as Sonepat, Rewari and Hisar, were covered by the southwest monsoon.

The monsoon is expected to fully cover the two States and Union Territory of Chandigarh within the next few days.

Rains lashed parts of Himachal Pradesh for the third consecutive day as the southwest monsoon advanced into more areas of the State.

Tourists rescued

About 400 tourists, who were stranded on a stretch of the Manali-Leh national highway, blocked due to landslides and inundated by rainwater, were rescued after 15 hours of hectic efforts. The Border Road Organisation teams cleared the blockage.

Moderate to heavy rainfall occurred at most places in Bihar in the past 24 hours while very heavy rainfall occurred at Bhagalpur, the Met office said.
