Heavy Rain in Gujarat Today

Heavy Rain in Gujarat Today

Till last Sunday, the state was staring at a year of drought as a majority of the regions barrings south Gujarat
 had deficient rainfall. But a good spell that started from last Tuesday turned the tables – the overall rainfall was 49.8% till September 5. The rainfall increased by 11.6% as it reached 61.4% on September 

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) forecast mentioned that the wet spell is likely to continue for the next five days with a majority of the regions in Gujarat standing a chance to get good rainfall.

According to GSDMA data, the biggest gainers were north Gujarat, Kutch and Saurashtra where over 10% deficit was wiped out. Kutch got 15% of seasonal rainfall, whereas Saurashtra and north Gujarat got 14% rain.
“The low-pressure area over southwest Rajasthan & adjoining Gujarat region along with cyclonic circulation is one of the systems active over the region that would give a good rainfall. Moreover, a trough from northeast Arabian Sea to east-central Bay of Bengal would further accentuate the scenario for Gujarat,” said a Met department official. “The systems are covering almost entire Gujarat, and thus all regions are likely to get good rainfall for the next four days.”
Ahmedabad city recorded 3mm rainfall from 6am to 8pm on Sunday. Of 251 talukas of Gujarat, 198 got at least 1mm rainfall on Sunday. Khambhalia in Devbhoomi Dwarka got 98mm rainfall, followed by 66mm in Kaprada in Valsad, 64mm in Muli in Surendranagar, 63mm in Limdi in Surendranagar, and 59mm in Jamnagar. In all, 12 talukas got 50mm or more rainfall on Sunday.
