Earlier, the MeT office had sounded an ‘orange alert’, but it is now been changed to ‘red alert’ for Wednesday because of the “favourable synoptic conditions”, Dr Jayant Sarkar, head of the Regional Meteorological Centre here said.

“There are two favourable synoptic situations for heavy to very heavy rains in Mumbai today and in the next few days. The offshore trough, spread from south Gujarat coast to Karnataka is expected to increase the intensity of showers,” Sarkar said. (PTI)

13 killed, over 1 lakh evacuated as unprecedented floods hit central China
At least 13 people were killed and over a lakh evacuated in China’s central Henan province hit by the heaviest rainfall in 1,000 years, prompting President Xi Jinping on Wednesday to deploy the Army to rescue those trapped in inundated subways, hotels and public places, amid fears of collapse of a dam posing flood risk to the provincial capital.

The massive floods, described by meteorologists as a once-in-a-lifetime event, has resulted in apocalyptic scenes in the provincial capital Zhengzhou, a metropolis of 12.6 million, with its public avenues and subway tunnels getting submerged with surging waters. (PTI) 12:14 PM IST
