Northeast states, including Assam and Meghalaya, have been put on Orange Alert from April 9 to April 11 as heavy rains and thunderstorms continue to lash across the region.
Since last week, intense rain spells have been drenching parts of Northeast India, with some locations even experiencing extremely heavy downpours at the beginning of this week. Now, similar conditions are expected to prevail for at least the next five days, with more heavy precipitation on the horizon.
According to the India Meteorological Department, strong and moist southwesterly winds continue to blow in from the Bay of Bengal and onto the northeastern states.
Under their influence, fairly widespread to widespread rains, accompanied by lightning and thunderstorms, are expected across Sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Meghalaya over the next five days.
In the same time frame, isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are also likely to impact Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura.
In view of these predictions, the IMD has issued a yellow watch over the five aforementioned states and subdivisions for the next 24 hours. Thereafter, from Saturday to Monday, the advisory over Assam and Meghalaya will be upgraded to an orange alert.
