Such a storm comes suddenly, there was no forecast
There was no forecast from the Meteorological Department about this storm. The Meteorological Department claims that this change in weather is sudden. There can be many reasons behind this. Primarily damp winds were coming from the southeast direction. This created an area of low air pressure and was also affected by western disturbances. All these seasonal systems resulted in sudden weather changes and record rainfall with strong winds.
Lightning is eroding in tricity
After the thunderstorm and rain, the electricity of the entire tricity fell. After normal weather, electricity came in some places, but the places where the poles and transformers were uprooted, there was no electricity till late night.
