Widespread rain in Himachal

Chandigarh, June 10
The ongoing heatwave in southern Haryana has claimed one more life, taking the toll to 59 in Punjab and Haryana since the onset of summer, while people in the entire northwest region continued to breathe dust.

The day temperatures stayed two to three degrees below normal as Hisar stayed hot at around 41C.

Ravinder Kumar, a rickshaw-puller of Ding village in Sirsa district, died of heat stroke yesterday.

A strong dust storm, at times touching a speed of 80 km per hour, followed by brief sharp showers in and around Chandigarh this evening, brought pleasant respite to the people. However, widespread rains had been reported from Himachal Pradesh.

Reports here said Sundernagar and Bhuntar had 12mm and 4 mm of rainfall, respectively, and recorded highs of 36C and 33.5C, respectively.

Kalpa valley had 1.7 mm of rainfall and Una, which was experiencing blistering hot weather, too was lashed by a strong dust storm followed by sharp showers.

Patiala with the high of 39.2C, which two degrees below normal, turned out to be the hottest place in Punjab. Ludhiana with the high of 38.8C and Amritsar with 37.8C were other hottest places.

According to official reports, Shimla and its surrounding areas were lashed by rain around noon. From a drizzle the downpour accompanied by thunder and lightning increased in the day, sending the residents to seek shelter in shops and other places.

Till 2.20 p.m. the extension centre of Y.S. Parmar Horticulture University at Mashobra reported 7 mm of rainfall. According to unofficial reports, the rainfall recorded was around 10 mm till 5 p.m.

Dr S.P. Bhardwaj, Associate Director of the centre, said the day temperatures fell from 30.2C yesterday to 24.4C at 1 p.m. today and this would fall further.

Reports of rainfall were also reported from other parts of the state which, according to Dr Bhardwaj, would be helpful to the crops. UNI
