Summer's here, city braces for water, power woes 22.3.2017 deccanherald.com
This summer, India Meteorological Department has forecast a further rise in temperature with periodic thundershowers in Bengaluru and parts of south interior Karnataka. The city on Wednesday recorded a maximum of 34° Celsius, against 33.6° Celsius on Tuesday and 36° Celsius on Sunday. Sundar M Metri, director-in-charge, IMD-Bengaluru, told DH cloudy skies and thundershowers are expected in the coming days. "When humidity increases and there is moisture in the air, clouds are formed, which lead to thundershowers. After that, the temperature starts to soar again," he explained. He said the discomfort is due to dry weather and lack of wind. While the humidity level is 49%, wind speed is three knots. Increasing concretisation is also causing a slight increase in temperature, he said. Though the energy department claims that there is sufficient power to meet the summer needs, Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom) officials warn of power cuts due to maintenance work. "Though we have ...
