Mumbai: The state government has issued a warning for heavy rainfall for eastern Vidarbha region on August 27 and 28. Meanwhile, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has stated that moderate to heavy rains are likely in Gadchiroli, Chandrapur, Yavatmal, Gondia and Bhandara districts.

“Due to this warning of impending rainfall, flooding can occur due to river-drains, which can also break the contact of some villages. Therefore, people living on the banks of rivers and streams should be cautious,” read the state government’s advisory.

 

At the same time, light to moderate rains are expected in Nagpur, Wardha, Amravati, Nanded, Hingoli and Washim districts, while the rest of Vidarbha, Marathwada and Khandesh will also have possibility of light rainfall.

There will be no special change in weather in other parts of the state.

According to weather experts, it is expected that the next few days would again bring down the extent of rainfall in the state after August 28.

The agriculture department has appealed to farmers to carry out agricultural activities after paying heed to the forecast.
