Inclement weather may lash South Bengal early next week
Kolkata, 2 March (HS):A severe inclement weather of heavy rain accompanied by strong wind may lash the city and the entire South Bengal during the next 48 hours with the possibility of causing extensive damage to standing crops and some property. According to the local Met officer here today,in the wake of the formation of a deep depression in the south of Bay of Bengal,a thick rain fed cloud was seen about 200 km away from the coast of South Bengal today which was moving in South East direction towards South Bengal. In most likely hood it would bring in extensive and heavy rain on a wide area after hitting the land on Monday (4 March), the sources said. As a result,not only Kolkata,but almost all the South Bengal districts,particularly both South and North 24 Parganas,East and West Midnapore, Howrah, Hooghly, Nadia,Burdwan and Birbhum might experience upto 50 millimeter of rain on each day during the next three to four days from 4 March. Apart from causing huge damage to standing crops like paddy and vegetables, a large number of houses in villages might be damaged because of such a continuous inclement weather for several days,the sources at the Met office said. Similarly,like earlier this week several low lying areas in and around this City of Joy might also be affected and waterlogged for several hours. A number of trees and lamp posts in different areas might be uprooted halting traffic for several hours each day, besides causing tremendous hardship to the common people, the sources said adding that today''s maximum temperature in the city was recorded at 27 degree Celsius and the minimum at 15.5 degree in the evening,which were two degree above normal, the sources added.
