AGARTALA, April 24 (TIWN): A flood like situation has gripped Northeast state Tripura after a consistent rain since 4 days here. The condition of National Highway has gone to its worst shape along with damages, one life loss out of lightning in Western part of Tripura. Big-big trees have fallen on roadside, whereas normal lives have been heavily disrupted. Agartala, Udaipur like cities prime areas are now under knee-level of water and the Northern Tripura's condition is also same. River Howrah's water level has increased much and at Dumboor the condition is more or less same. As per weather dept report, the rain to continue here for some more days. Farmers are facing heavy losses, due to the continuous pre-monsoon rains. More rainfall activity is expected for next 3-4 days.

But the rain fall MM is highest in Tripura with 81 MM, whereas Mizoram was the second with 80 MM.According to Skymet Weather, this spell of rainfall can be attributed to a cyclonic circulation persisting over East Bangladesh and adjoining Tripura.

 This system has affected the weather over the entire northeastern region. Moderate winds coming from south- west direction is bringing the moisture content in the form of winds blowing moderately and causing good rains over these states. Furthermore, we expect good rains to continue over Bangladesh, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura and rest of Northeastern states for the next 4 to 5 days. The rain intensity is likely to further increase after April 24. Rain belt is expected to gradually shift towards the north when Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh will record light to moderate rainfall.

Light to a moderate spell of rainfall is expected to persist over the region for the next few days. Scattered rains will continue over Nagaland, Mizoram, Manipur and Tripura. This rainfall activity will not bring immense change to the current conditions over the northeastern states of India.
