Weather Updates: Flood-like situation in Rajasthan

Weather Updates: Heavy rainfall in Rajasthan created flood-like situations in several districts, inundating roads and railway tracks on Tuesday. Many areas in these districts were waterlogged due to vehicles being swept away in rainwater.

Also, four children tragically drowned in a pit filled with rainwater in Jodhpur on Tuesday afternoon. Station House Officer Khedapa Nemaram said that five children were bathing in the pit when they slipped into the deep pit. While four of them drowned, one managed to get out and call for help, but it was too late.

He tweeted that the family of each of the deceased will be provided Rs. 5 lakh under the Chiranjeevi Accident insurance scheme, adding that the child who survived will be given an assistance amount of Rs. 20,000 from the chief minister’s relief fund.

According to the Indian Meteorological Department, heavy to very heavy rains lashed several parts of Chittorgarh, Jaipur, Ajmer, Sawai Madhopur, Rajsamand, Dungarpur, Banswara, Kota, Sirohi, Jodhpur, Pali, Nagaur, and Jalore districts during this period.

An IMD official said that at present, there is a circulation system over eastern Rajasthan, which will have its effect in the districts of Ajmer, Jodhpur, and Udaipur divisions for the next few days.

Meanwhile, due to the rough weather, the northwestern railway (NWR) cancelled seven trains, partially cancelled six trains, and diverted two others.
