Nagaland State Disaster Management Authority (NSDMA) has predicted that moderate rainfall with thunderstorm and lightning was very likely over the districts of Kiphire, Kohima, Longleng, Mokokchung, Mon, Peren, Phek, Tuensang, Noklak and Wokha during July 26-28, 2022.
In a press release, NSDMA stated that due to the strong lower-level South-westerly winds from the Bay of Bengal to Northeast India during July 27-29, 2022, moisture incursion was very likely to occur.
Under its influence, NSDMA said fairly widespread/widespread rainfall accompanied with thunderstorm/lightning/ heavy to very heavy rainfall was expected in isolated place in the state. NSDMA has, therefore, urged the public to take necessary precautionary measures during this time and exercise caution from lightning strikes and gale winds, which could cause disruption to road transport, communication and other infrastructures.
Asserting that monsoon period can cause incidents of extreme weather events, the NSDMA also 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.
