MP floods

Heavy rains have been battering parts of Madhya Pradesh for the last many days now. So much so that in a span of just 24 hours, from 8:30 am on Sunday, Seoni has recorded extremely heavy rains of 313 mm, followed by Bhopal 140 mm, Sagar 109 mm, Raisen 132 mm, Jabalpur 75 mm, Mandla 61 mm and Damoh 58 mm.

In fact, due to heavy amounts of rainfall, the local administration has ordered to keep all the schools and colleges closed in Bhopal and Mandla today.

According to our meteorologists, the flood situation is likely for the next few days as heavy to very heavy rains would lash many parts of the state. Places like Bhopal, Indore, Ujjain, Ratlam, Guna, Sagar, Gwalior, Morena etc would observe no relief from flooding rains for the next three to four days.

The Low-Pressure Area continues to be over Northeast Madhya Pradesh. And the axis of Monsoon Trough has been extending from Rajasthan to this Low-Pressure Area across Madhya Pradesh. The effect of these systems would give more flooding rains in Madhya Pradesh, particularly West and Northeast Madhya Pradesh for at least next three days.

However, the intensity would be comparatively lesser this time over the southeastern districts such as Mandla and adjoining areas.

Due to continuous amount of rainfall, nearly all the dams in the state are full to the brim. And due to overflowing waters, the officials are planning to open the gates of many reservoirs in the state, which may further worsen the situation and lead to water-logging and flood havoc in many low-lying areas.
