Punjab, Haryana are battered by south-west monsoon

CHANDIGARH: India Meteorological Department (IMD) said that the south-west monsoon, which made landfall in numerous areas of Punjab and Haryana on Thursday, is predicted to bring widespread showers during the next two days. 

There have been downpours in both states at a number of locations. Within the next 24 hours, the monsoon would rapidly sweep throughout both states.

According to the IMD, the region's monsoon typically begins on June 27.

Heavy rains caused waterlogging in several major locations of Chandigarh, the joint capital of Punjab and Haryana, which hampered transportation, especially for people going to work.

The drainage infrastructure of Chandigarh need a complete makeover, the local people complained. To prevent waterlogging, many low-lying locations need to have their drainage systems modified, they add.

As per the daily bulletin issued by the IMD today, it is said that Punjab and Haryana may expect widespread light to moderate rainfall, sporadic thunderstorms or lightning, and sporadic heavy to very heavy rainfall.
