Imphal, July 4: Rain occurred in most places in Manipur during the last 24 hours, according to records provided by the Indian Meteorological Department. Other states of north-eastern regions like Nagaland, Mizoram and Tripura also witnessed similar rainfall while in the states of Assam and Meghalaya the rainfall happened in isolated places.
The sources from IMD stated that Manipur will receive heavy rain at isolated place throughout July 5, 2017. However, the welcomed news is that the department has predicted very little or no rain in the state for the next three days beginning July 6, 2017.
During the last few days, the intensity of rain was highest at Tengnoupal and Chandel districts where it was clubbed among the very heavy rain bracket which fall in the 115.6 to 204.5 mm range. The remaining districts fared a bit better receiving rainfall between 64.5 to 115.5 mm qualifying them in the group of districts with heavy rain. Churachandpur town received 2 mm rain yesterday. Due to the incessant rain and dense cloud formation the temperature of Imphal has dipped after a short hot spell encountered in May and early June. The minimum and maximum temperatures recorded in the city on July 4 last was 23 degree C and 28 degree C and both are predicted to climb by only 1-3 units by the end of the week.
On the other hand, the current situation of flood water inundation reveals that scores of villages and localities are struggling to cope with it as the retention of water remains more or less the same. The water level in most rivers have descended slightly after reduction in volume of rain but the threat of fresh flood still persists.  However, in some parts of Thoubal and Imphal East districts the trend is the other way round as rivers overflowed again worsening the situation.
