The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) warned the Telugu states of heavy rains from May 11th. The heavy rains will last for around 3-4 days according to the IMD.
‘Beginning on May 11th, we can notice heavy rains coupled with thunders, and lightning in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. At the same time, different regions in the country will experience different types of climate. Winds are expected to touch the 60 kmph to 70 kmph mark during these 3 days’ said a senior official from the IMD.
The IMD has already warned the people to stay indoors as much as possible, owing to the heavy frequency of lightning strikes. In just a matter of three days in the last one week, more than 150,000 lightning strikes were recorded in Andhra Pradesh alone.
Speaking on the same, IMD Director K Jayaram said, ‘due to the blizzard climatic conditions prevailing across the nation, we request the people to be utmost careful. They should stay away from bus shelters, construction sites, and another type of shelters made with iron’.Given the extreme temperatures, which are soaring 4 Degrees – 5 Degrees above normal, the rains are expected to bring the heat down.
