Heavy Rainfall Sweeps Across Multiple States; Educational Institutions Close in Kerala

Published on

A low-pressure system, steadily progressing eastward across several Indian states, has unleashed heavy rainfall in Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Sikkim, and northern Odisha. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) issued a weather bulletin on Tuesday, projecting the movement of this low-pressure area from southeast Jharkhand towards an eastward trajectory over the next two to three days. This shift is anticipated to trigger widespread rainfall across multiple states in the vicinity.

The IMD’s daily update indicates that heavy rainfall is expected to persist over the next three days in Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Sikkim, and northern Odisha, while northeastern India should brace for similar conditions for the next four days.

Today, the forecast forewarns of heavy to very heavy rainfall in Bihar, West Bengal, Sikkim, Jharkhand, and northern Odisha. The wet weather is expected to continue over Arunachal Pradesh, Assam & Meghalaya, and Mizoram & Tripura until October 6.

As India transitions from the monsoon season to post-monsoon weather patterns in various regions, the Southwest Monsoon has withdrawn from significant portions of Uttarakhand, West Uttar Pradesh, West Madhya Pradesh, and the remaining parts of Rajasthan, along with some areas in Gujarat.

Kerala has not been spared from the deluge, with parts of the state experiencing heavy rainfall on Tuesday. The forecast predicts more rain for Wednesday, prompting the district administration in Thiruvananthapuram to declare a holiday for educational institutions, including professional colleges and Kendriya Vidyalayas on October 4. This decision was made in response to an orange alert issued for heavy rain in the district.

Thiruvananthapuram district collector Geromic George declared the holiday due to the overflowing of canals in the district resulting from continuous rainfall over the past few days.

In addition to the orange alert in the southernmost district, a yellow alert was issued for Kollam, Pathanamthitta, and Alappuzha districts. An orange alert indicates the likelihood of very heavy rainfall, ranging from 6 cm to 20 cm, while a yellow alert signifies heavy rainfall ranging from 6 to 11 cm.

Meanwhile, the persistent rains have prompted the deployment of more than 150 fire and rescue personnel in Kanyakumari. Schools in the city will remain closed for a second consecutive day as the region copes with incessant rainfall.
