Several places in the State were pounded by heavy rains for a second time within a week, even as the low- pressure area remained stationary over the northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining West Bengal without intensifying. Adilabad recorded 10 cm of rain, resulting in floods in numerous rivulets, tanks and streams. In the same district, Sirpur reported 8 cm, Utnoor 7 cm and Adsifabad 6 cm. Penn Ganga, a tributary of the Pranahita, which joins the Godavari at Kaleswaram in

In Coastal Andhra, Narapur and Machilipatnam recorded 5 cm each, Gudiwada 4 cm and Tenali 3 cm. There was almost no rain in Rayalaseema.
