Erratic monsoon: floods in some parts, water scarcity in some others 28.7.2017 Latest News
Infamous for its vagaries, the southwest monsoon has created two contrasting water situations causing distress in several parts of the country. In the first two months of its four-month of journey, the monsoon has brought in surplus rains in some parts and scanty showers in some others. The rains have wreaked havoc in parts of Gujarat, Rajasthan, West Bengal and Assam leading to loss of life, property and standing crops. At the same time, parts of Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra have got inadequate rains, aggravating already prevailing drought-like conditions there.Data from the India Meteorological Department (IMD) showed that from June 1 to July 27, the southwest monsoon was over 62 per cent surplus in most of Gujarat on an average, almost 55 per cent surplus over Rajasthan, 5 per cent excess in West Bengal, while it was 20 per cent deficient over Karnataka, 19 per cent short in Tamil Nadu and 28 per cent less in Kerala.Ironically, it is 10 per cent deficient in Assam
