IIE Digital Desk : West Bengal is set to experience heavy rainfall throughout the week, with several districts bracing for continuous downpours. The Meteorological Department has issued warnings for intense rain, urging residents to prepare for potential disruptions. Districts including Kolkata, Howrah, Hooghly, and South 24 Parganas are expected to be the most affected. The incessant rain is likely to lead to waterlogging in urban areas and may disrupt daily activities, including transportation and business operations. Rural areas are also at risk of flooding, which could impact agriculture and local infrastructure.

Authorities have advised people to remain indoors and avoid unnecessary travel. Emergency services are on high alert, and measures are being taken to address any potential flooding and related issues swiftly. Residents are encouraged to stay updated with weather forecasts and heed advisories issued by local authorities. The continuous rain is attributed to a low-pressure system over the Bay of Bengal, which is drawing moisture-laden winds towards the region. While the rainfall brings much-needed relief from the summer heat, the excessive precipitation could pose challenges for the region. Communities are urged to remain vigilant and take necessary precautions to stay safe during this period of heavy rainfall.
