Hailstorm brings in crop damage in Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra

Hailstorm brings in crop damage in Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra

03:51 PM


Yesterday, most parts of East Madhya Pradesh and some parts of Vidarbha in the state of Maharashtra received rain and thundershower activities accompanied with strong gusty winds. Hailstorm activities were also recorded at many parts. The gusty winds and hailstorm brought in widespread damage for the Rabi crops growing in the area. Crops over the region were already reeling under damages caused by the previous spell of hailstorm when this recent weather came as a blow to farmers over the region.

Standing crops like that of wheat, fenugreek, black gram, coriander, mustard and lentils had to bear the brunt of the harsh weather activities.

Earlier the Cyclonic Circulation was over North Rajasthan and has now moved eastwards and is now prevailing over Central parts of Uttar Pradesh. Also, the trough which was extending from this Circulation up to Telangana region has moved away from the area reducing the ongoing activity to a great extent. At present, only few scattered areas are witnessing an overcast sky.

We expect dry weather to continue for next two days until another weather system approaches the area and brings along a wet spell between February 20 and 22.
