Chandigarh: Water level of  Sukhna Lake has gone up by a foot (11 inches) following showers. It was recorded at 1,153. 25 feet on Thursday. The water level has been on the rise  since the onset of the monsoon. It had gone up by 3 inches after  the July  12 rainfall. It had reduced to 1152.15 ft, the lowest in the past five years. Reducing water level was a cause of concern for the Administration as the issue was under the scanner of the High Court.  CITCO had also restricted the area for boating. The water level was recorded at 1152. 90 ft on May 25, which further reduced to 1152.15. The High Court has already ordered to take required steps for increasing the water level.

Rain pattern has weatherman worried 28.7.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, July 27 As it rained today, Surinder Paul, Director of the Meteorological Department, Chandigarh, was not pleased with its pattern. He termed it a high-intensity rain, which would not help replenish the groundwater. “Such rain causes flash floods. Water just runs off the surface and it does not seep into the earth. Slow and constant showers are always better as raindrops are properly absorbed. In today’s case-first the rain and later the clear sky- humidity will go up,” said Surinder Paul. Surinder Paul maintained that once the monsoon was over, the department would study the changing pattern of rain. He said earlier, the monsoon rain used to remain for two to three days, whereas in the past 10 years, the consistency of the rain had reduced to merely 24 hours. “However, the intensity of the rain has increased. Very heavy rainfall is being witnessed in a matter of few hours,” said Surinder Paul. He said after heavy rain, the weather turned dry, which could further lead to ...

Dhanushkodi reborn: PM unveils new NH to mainland 28.7.2017
Rameswaram: Prime Minister Narendra Modi dedicating to the nation on Thursday the now-renewed missing link of 9.5 km stretch of the National Highway (NH-49, now new NH 87), that will link the sacred spot of Dhanushkodi, at the Southeastern tip of this pilgrim-island of Rameswaram, is a matter of joy for the locals. A new beginning unfolds from this auspicious Tamil month of "Aadi", as this vital infrastructure link holds the key for the rejuvenation of this once flourishing coastal town. Nature"s fury had blown it into smithereens, as a super cyclonic storm on the night of December 23, 1964, had in one stroke not only washed away over 300 train passengers but also reduced Dhanushkodi to rubble. The geography of the epic Ramayana would be incomplete without Dhanushkodi, said to be shaped like Rama"s bow itself, and the nearby ancient Shiva temple in Rameswaram where Lord Ram, on retrieving Seetha after vanquishing the Lankan King Ravanna performed a purification ritual on way back ...
