Relief for northeast as rainfall distribution goes down | Guwahati News


GUWAHATI: The intensity of rainfall and distribution have come down drastically in the northeast but Meghalaya and Tripura are still experiencing more than 100% rain, which is above the normal range.
In Assam where the floods have devastated several districts, 84% more rainfall than normal this week (May 18 to 22) was experienced. In the previous week (May 12-18) 327% more rainfall above normal was recorded. Last week, the highest departure of 663% above normal was recorded in Meghalaya. But the corresponding percentage for Meghalaya, too, has dropped to 151 above normal this week.
Between May 18 and 22, the departure has been highest in Meghalaya, followed by 116% in Tripura. Except for Tripura, where the departure was comparatively lower last week at 58% above normal, the rest of the northeastern states have seen a noticeable drop in the rainfall distribution percentage.
“Moisture incursion from the Bay of Bengal towards the northeast declined from May 19. Thus, both rainfall intensity and distribution have come down,” said Sunit Das, a senior scientist at the Regional Meteorological Centre of the IMD.
Rainfall activity may gain pace with the advent of the monsoon next month, but IMD officials said in the next few days the enormity of rain will come down. The Assam State Disaster Management agency sources said the flood situation will continue to improve in the state as the floodwaters have started receding. The number of flood affected districts came down from last week’s 31 to 22 on Monday morning.
Though the departure remains above normal for all NE states, it has declined from 158% recorded last week to 30% this week in Arunachal Pradesh. For Assam, the same has fallen from 327 to 84%. In Nagaland, too, the departure above normal has come down from 90% to 21%, whereas the corresponding figures in the case of Manipur has dropped from 222% to 26% above normal range. The declining trend in rainfall continues in Mizoram as well, where the departure above normal has come down from 59% to 29%.
