Konkan coast safe from Nanuak cyclone
At last the fear of Nanuak cyclonic storm spinning around Arabian Sea has disappeared with activation of Monsoon in Ratnagiri, Sindhudurg and lower Konkan
Malvan: At last the fear of Nanuak cyclonic storm spinning around Arabian Sea has disappeared with activation of Monsoon in Ratnagiri, Sindhudurg and lower Konkan. Monsoon has now moved ahead from Karnataka and Tamil Nadu coast and settled in lower Konkan.
Nanuak cyclonic storm has travelled 800kms further, towards Oman and cold winds have soothed its intensity. Hence, MeT expert Dinesh Mishra has informed that Konkan coastal area is safe from Nanuak now.
However, there is an indication of heavy rain and coastal area has been declared under high alert. Monsoon has arrived in full zest and incidences of property damage due to heavy rains and winds are already recorded since Saturday. Continuous rainfall has disturbed routine in the region.
Monsoon has covered complete Konkan belt and heavy rains are anticipated during next 72 hours. Meanwhile, district and taluka administration has announced high alert here.
This season, monsoon is predicated to rain at the average of 95% in India. Central India, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Haryana etc will witness even lower i.e. 85 – 90% rainfall. But 5% less rainfall will not make much difference for Konkan as the region is known for heavy rainfall. It will observe heavy rainfall in next eight days, said Mishra.
