Monsoon warnings are issued; there is an orange alert for Delhi and flash floods in Himachal

On Sunday, the monsoon began to arrive in states including Gujarat, Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Haryana, Punjab, and the nation’s capital. Vehicle travel was hampered on certain routes by waterlogging from heavy downpours.According to an IMD official, the monsoon season has begun in many regions of India, including some of Maharashtra, all of Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, northeast India, West Bengal, Jharkhand, Bihar, east Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, the majority of Himachal Pradesh, and some of Haryana.The weather organization has now released alerts for various regions of the nation.


Uttarakhand had an array of heavy rainstorms that led to landslides in different areas of the state.The change occurs even though the Met office has issued a “orange alert” for a number of districts. In some remote areas of the Nainital, Champawat, Pithoragarh, Bageshwar, Dehradun, Tehri, and Pauri districts, there may be heavy rain.


Rain occurred in many areas of Punjab and Haryana. The monsoon is projected to spread deeper into these states, according to the Met department. Rain fell through Sunday morning in Ambala, Karnal, Narnaul, Rohtak, Bhiwani, Gurugram, Kurukshetra, and Mohali. Locals in Panchkula helped a woman who had been trapped in a car that had been carried away in a river.


Roadblocks, wrecked cars, and landslides were all observed in Himachal Pradesh. The Kangra, Mandi, and Solan districts of the hill state are also likely to experience flash floods. On June 25 and 26, there will likely be isolated areas of heavy to very heavy rain, thunderstorms, and lightning, according to the Met Office’s orange advisory. Additionally, there has been a yellow notice issued for the 27th and 28th of June, signaling thunderstorms and lightning.The hill state has received a rain alert for the upcoming five days.


According to officials, Mumbai and its suburbs had severe rainfall over the past 24 hours that caused water logging in several areas and affected traffic flow on other highways. On other Mumbai highways, traffic flow was still impeded. According to a PTI report, water-logging in districts like Malad and Andheri slowed down the traffic even more.

Eknath Shinde, the chief minister of Maharashtra, has directed BMC officials to take action to prevent water-logging, which would hinder vehicular traffic during rain.


Two days earlier than anticipated, the monsoon arrived in the nation’s capital. For the first time since June 21, 1961, the monsoon season began simultaneously in Mumbai and Delhi, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD). An orange alert has been issued for Delhi for Monday, June 26. On Wednesday, June 27, and Thursday, June 28, there is a yellow alert.


In the flood-stricken state of Assam, there are now only 14 impacted districts. According to a PTI report, this suggested a small improvement in the situation in Assam. According to the report, there were no rivers in spate in the state, and the number of impacted individuals decreased to roughly 2.70 lakh. In contrast, seven embankments in Nalbari have been compromised in the past day, compared to three in Darrang district. The homes there have also sustained damage.


The monsoon has a good chance of moving further into sections of Jammu and Kashmir. Due to heavy rainfall in Mendhar in the Poonch district, flash floods occurred in the state’s Harni Nallah region. 


East Madhya Pradesh has also received an orange alert. Rainfall from large to very heavy amounts can also happen in remote areas of the west.”On Saturday night, the monsoon arrived in MP from its eastern region, which borders Chhattisgarh. By Sunday afternoon, the whole state of MP, including its western region, which is home to the state capital Bhopal, was covered by the quickly moving rain-bearing system, according to R Balasubramanian, director of the IMD Bhopal center. By June 29, the monsoon is anticipated to have reached all of Madhya Pradesh.
