IMD warns of heavy rain in 5 districts of Maharashtra; Orange alert for Mumbai

India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a red alert for five Maharashtra districts forecasting extremely heavy rainfall at isolated places, for the next two days. It also issued an orange alert for Mumbai for the next three days, indicating possibility of heavy to very heavy rainfall. The IMD’s Mumbai center forecast a ‘very likely’ probability of ‘extremely heavy rainfall at isolated places’ in five districts – Pune, Raigad, Ratnagiri, Kolhapur and Satara.

The red alert in these districts was issued for today and tomorrow. The IMD describes rainfall as ‘very likely’ when the probability of the occurrence is 51 to 75 per cent. A red rain alert means authorities should take preventive actions such as evacuation of people from vulnerable areas and deploy rescue teams. The IMD’s orange alert for Mumbai for the next three days says that heavy to very heavy rain of 115.6 mm to 204.4 mm is likely at a few places in the metropolis. It said that Marathwada and Vidarbha regions of the state are likely to receive light to moderate showers till Friday.
