Heavy rains to batter northeastern states, IMD issues orange alert

Mar 30, 2021 09:30 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The weather department made a forecast of rains and thunderstorm over northeastern states and issued an orange alert for Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura for March 30-31.

The IMD said under the influence of strong lower-level southwesterly winds from the Bay of Bengal fairly widespread to widespread rain with thunderstorm and lightning at isolated places are very likely over northeast India during March 29-April 2.  

Landslides and inundation of low-lying areas at some places in south Assam, Meghalaya, Tripura and Mizoram is likely. Due to this weather system, localised flooding of roads, waterlogging and closure of underpasses mainly in urban areas can be expected.
