Monsoon picks up in the North


Rain gods smiled on Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh and some other places in the northern belt. The monsoon remained vigorous in Kerala and Gujarat with incessant rains flooding low-lying areas, triggering landslips and extensively damaging standing crops. Rain fury had claimed 28 lives so far in Kerala where landslides were reported from Kannur and Kozhikode districts.

Heavy rains pelted Gujarat where 400 people were evacuated to safer places in Jamnagar district’s Lalpur area as water level of major rivers in the state rose perilously.
