Madhya Pradesh experiences heavy rainfall; Bhopal schools are closed

On Monday, heavy rains persisted in many areas of Madhya Pradesh for a third day, forcing the closure of schools in various districts, including the state capital Bhopal and Jabalpur, according to officials. In the west of the state, isolated areas are expected to experience extremely heavy rainfall on Monday, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD). In several areas of the state, rivers, drains, and other water bodies were in spate, and many dams’ gates had been opened to let water out. Due to low visibility on numerous roads, particularly in western MP, less traffic was seen. In several of the state’s low-lying areas, complaints of water logging have surfaced. IMD has provided advice to Avoid travelling while it is pouring outside.

Monday saw torrential downpours batter Bhopal and surrounding districts. Due to the excessive rains on Monday, schools in various areas, including Bhopal and Jabalpur, remained closed, according to the officials. The authorities had issued directives for the closure of schools on Sunday evening due to the weather prediction. According to an IMD official, Bhopal experienced 190.5 mm of rain in the 24 hours leading up to 8:30 am on Monday, followed by Guna (174.9 mm), Sagar (173.9 mm), Raisen (162 mm), and Jabalpur 160 mm. Rain and wind in Bhopal uprooted many trees near the sides of the road, disrupted power in many places, and snarled traffic. Personnel from the Bhopal Municipal Corporation were observed removing branches and trees that had fallen into the roads.

Near Bhopal and Sagar, in the middle of MP, there was a depression. Therefore, very heavy rains are predicted to continue in the Bhopal, Narmadapuram, Sagar, and Gwalior divisions until tonight, according to senior meteorologist Ved Prakash Singh of the IMD’s Bhopal Office. The depression is probably going to head west (towards Guna in MP and Rajasthan). As a result, when the depression over central MP moves westward, Indore and Ujjain divisions are also anticipated to receive moderate to heavy rainfall by night, the official added. He added that nearly the entire state experienced rain in the previous 24 hours and that the monsoon showers have subsided somewhat in eastern MP. From Tuesday onward, Singh predicted a decrease in the amount of rain.
