“Heavy rainfall in NE in the Next Five Days” – IMD


The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted that almost all states in the Northeast are likely to experience heavy rains in the next five days.

Heavy rains are expected in the states over Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura, as informed by the IMD on Tuesday.

The IMD stated that due to the influence of strong southwesterly winds from the Bay of Bengal to Northeast India in lower troposphere levels, widespread rainfall with isolated heavy to very heavy rainfall is likely over Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, and Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura during the next five days.

according to the IMD, the Nagaland districts of Mon, Longleng, Tuensang, Kohima, and Peren are likely to experience widespread rainfall on June 7 and 8. Also, the districts of Mokokchung, Kiphire, Phek, Dimapur, Zunheboto, and Wokha are likely to experience rainfall on the same days.

On June 9 and 10, Dimapur, Wokha, Mokokchung, Zunheboto, Kiphire, and Phek are likely to experience fairly widespread rainfall, while Mon, Longleng, Tuensang, Kohima, and Peren districts are likely to continue experiencing widespread rainfall.
