The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) on Tuesday warned of “moderate flash flood risk” within the subsequent 24 hours in a couple of areas within the Vidarbha area of Maharashtra.
Talking to PTI, Dr Praveen Kumar, scientist, Regional Meteorological Centre (Nagpur) – a unit of the IMD – mentioned there’s a chance of “moderate flash flood risk” within the subsequent 24 hours in a couple of locations of Nagpur, Amravati, Gadchiroli, Gondia, Chandrapur and Bhandara districts of Vidarbha.
Due to a well-marked low strain space over central elements of Madhya Pradesh, heavy to very heavy rainfall is anticipated over the adjoining state and reasonable to heavy showers over a couple of districts of Vidarbha, which can trigger reasonable flooding, he mentioned.
According to the most recent IMD bulletin, thunderstorm with lightning is prone to happen at remoted locations over Nagpur and Wardha.
Light to reasonable rainfall is prone to happen at most locations over Wardha, many locations over Nagpur, at a couple of areas over Yavatmal and at remoted locations over Akola, Amravati, Chandrapur and Washim districts of Vidarbha, it mentioned.
