The floodwaters due to recent heavy rains have not receded yet and another spell of rain and thundershower activities is ready to hit the state of Bihar.
According to the meteorologists at Skymet, after a short breather, the rainfall activities are once again set to increase in Bihar. Patna, Gaya and many other districts stand a chance to witness moderate showers with isolated heavy spells which may aggravate the situation in the flood-hit state.
Commencing from today, these on and off rains are expected to continue for the next three to four days. Thus, the risk of waterlogging and floods due to heavy showers is once again hovering over Bihar.
Due to large amounts of rainfall, the land is already saturated and there is no enough capacity left for further absorption. Many areas are still struggling with waterlogging, with many crops in the state severely damaged.
‘The upcoming rains would do nothing good but only worsen the situation further’, says our meteorologist.
After some time, the intensity would start decreasing from districts like Patna, Gaya and the western areas of Bihar, but eastern and southeastern districts such as Bhagalpur, Purnea may continue to get light to moderate rain for an extended period of time.
These rains can be attributed to the Cyclonic Circulation over Bihar and Jharkhand, likely to persist for the next two to three days. Moreover, the humid winds from the Bay of Bengal are making the conditions favourable for rains.
