Heavy Rainfall : IMD forecast flash flood and heavy rainfall in Central India, West coast

Heavy Rainfall: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) warned on Sunday that areas of central India and the west coast are likely to suffer heavy rainfall of over 200mm in the upcoming 3–4 days, which could result in flash floods in numerous spots.

On Sunday evening, according to weather forecast, a low-pressure system had developed due to cyclonic activity over the northwest Bay of Bengal and its surrounding areas, near the shores of West Bengal and Odisha. This is probably going to get worse and turn into a depression that moves across Chhattisgarh and Odisha to the west-northwest.

The monsoon trough, an elongated area of low pressure, is also active and south of its normal position, and the weather service predicts that it will stay that way for the next 4-5 days.

“Already, some parts of Odisha and Konkan region have started receiving very heavy and extremely heavy rain on Sunday. Under the influence of the depression, rain will increase over central India during the next 3-4 days,” said IMD director general, M Mohapatra.
