Downpour brings relief

Chandigarh, June 2
Heavy rainfall accompanied by high velocity winds in and around Chandigarh and parts of Punjab and Haryana today dipped the temperature below normal in most parts of the region.

A Met office spokesman said here that the rainfall accompanied with high velocity winds were a result of upper air cyclonic circulation over Pakistan and adjoining south-west of Jammu and Kashmir.

The temperature fell to 37.2C in Chandigarh, which was 3 below normal.

While Amritsar with a high of 42.9C, 3 above normal was the hottest place in the region, the mercury plumetted to 40.2C in Hisar, 2 below normal.

Patiala recorded 39C, 2 below normal, it was 37.4C in Ambala. 4 below normal.

The Met office predicted rain or thundershowers at many places in Punjab and Haryana during the next 24 hours.

Shimla: A person was drowned in a flooded nullah while a moderate to heavy intermittent rain has been lashing parts of Himachal Pradesh since last night.

The person slipped and was drowned in the Darad nullah, near Nurpur, in Kangra district. His body has been fished out, a report from Dharamsala said.

A Jersy cow and two bulls were washed away at Katherh village in Mandi district. A house was buried under a landslide in the adjoining Mehi village in the district. But it caused no loss of life, a report from Mandi said.

The Pathankot-Mandi highway was blocked for vehicular traffic following flashfloods in a nullah at Snoura in Kangra district. Few scooters were washed away due to the flashfloods and the water entered five residential houses in the village.

Shimla and its surrounding areas were pounded by torrential rain last night and today, brining a sharp fall in the temperature.

The town was lashed by a windstorm in the evening that blew off sign boards, twisted television antennae and disrupted power supply in some localities.

Lower areas, including Mandi, Kangra and Dharamsala also experienced heavy rain. PTI, UNI
