Heavy rain accompanied by strong winds hit several part of Nagaland on April 20 afternoon. 

In Dimapur, a number of trees were uprooted and power supply lines were also snapped at several locations. However, the power department personnel were able to restore the lines. Similar activities were also reported in other parts of Nagaland. 

There were also reports of heavy rain with hail in some places across the state.  No injuries were reported till the time of filing this report. 

Rains likely to continue

Rain and thundershower activities are likely to increase once again over most parts of the North East states in the wake of a Cyclonic Circulation that has developed over Meghalaya and its adjoining areas. 

According to meteorologists at Skymet, the combined effect of the Cyclonic Circulation and moisture incursion from the Bay of Bengal is expected to increase rainfall activity in Nagaland, Assam, Meghalaya and Manipur. 

This rainfall activity is expected to continue for two to three days. Heavy to very heavy rains are ruled out, but isolated intense spells are in the offing for NEregion. Rains will be accompanied by lightning strikes and strong surface winds. One or two places may also report hailstorm activities.

Also, the Anti-Cyclone which was over central parts of the Bay of Bengal has now shifted towards North Bay of Bengal. 

Due to this movement of the weather system, humid winds from the Bay of Bengal are feeding moisture to the North East states.
