“After the experience of last month, when several places were flooded (due to heavy rains), we are leaving nothing to chance,” the official said.

Heavy rainfall activity is expected over north and east India during the next three-four days, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Monday.

The low-pressure area over northwest Madhya Pradesh has become less marked.

However, the associated cyclonic circulation over northwest Madhya Pradesh and neighbourhood persists.

Another cyclonic circulation lies over the North Bay of Bengal. Under its influence, a low-pressure area is likely to form over North Bay of Bengal and neighbourhood around July 28.

Due to the influence of these two systems, widespread rainfall activity with heavy to very heavy rainfall is very likely over Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh and Uttar Pradesh till July 29 and its intensity will reduce thereafter.

Extremely heavy rainfall is also likely over Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand on July 27 and 28 and over northwest Uttar Pradesh on July 27.

Fairly widespread with heavy to very heavy rainfall is likely to continue over east Rajasthan and west Madhya Pradesh till July 26 and reduce thereafter.

There will be an enhanced rainfall activity with heavy to very heavy rainfall likely over east and adjoining central India including Odisha, Gangetic West Bengal and Jharkhand from July 27.

Fairly widespread to widespread and heavy rainfall is very likely over Konkan, Goa, the ghat areas of central Maharashtra during the next three days and might increase to isolated heavy to very heavy falls over the region from July 29.

Scores of lives have been lost due to landslides and floods in Maharashtra in the last two weeks.
