Nagaland would experience heavy rains and strong winds with the possibility of flash floods as well as landslides from July 1-12, 2020, the Nagaland State Disaster Management Authority (NSDMA) has predicted and said that second half of this period was expected to get more intense than the former.

During this period, NSDMA said thundershowers and lighting accompanied with heavy rains was expected in the districts of Mon, Mokokchung, Longleng, Tuensang, Peren, Phek, Kiphire and Zunheboto. It said that state capital Kohima was likely to have moderate to heavy rains from July 7-10. 
NSDMA has advised taking necessary precautionary measures as most rivers of the state were North-South flow and could overflow because of intense rains in catchment areas.  Further, NSDMA has urged the public to be vigilant and not to shelter under large trees and near the river banks to prevent unnecessary risk to life from lightning and flash flood.
