Monsoon subdued in North, flood fury unabated in U.P.

Major U.P. rivers continue to overflow, inundate villages

The monsoon remained subdued in parts of North India on Monday, including Punjab and Haryana, even as the flood fury was unabated in Uttar Pradesh.

Major rivers continued to overflow, inundating a number of villages in Uttar Pradesh and disrupting the transmission of Doordarshan and AIR in Bareilly.

According to a Central Water Commission report, the Ganga was flowing above the danger mark at Fatehgarh, Ballia and Gumtia (Kannauj) and was rising in Kanpur, Mirzapur, Varanasi and Ghazipur.

The Ramganga had crossed the danger mark at Dabri in Shahjahanpur and Yamuna in Mathura, it said. Over 50 villages in Bareilly were cut from the headquarters, a report said.

The mercury rose appreciably above normal in Punjab and Haryana as dry conditions prevailed in the region. Chandigarh recorded 34.1 degrees Celsius, a notch above normal, said the weatherman.

In Haryana and Punjab, major towns like Rohtak, Karnal, Ambala, Patiala and Amritsar recorded maximum temperatures of over 35.

The weatherman has forecast a partly cloudy Tuesday with possibility of thundery conditions in Punjab and Haryana.

The weather remained mostly dry in parts of Rajasthan even as a few places, including Udaipur, Kota and Ajmer, received light rain overnight. — PTI
