A heavy duty sand storm has hit the border districts of Rajasthan around Bikaner. Khajuwala town in Bikaner is affected the most with the impact or scale of storm that has come because meteorological imbalance in the upper air cyclonic system. Government had already informed about this storm and it is likely to come for next few days as well in northern belt of India. Last week the sand storm had killed 35 and 251 were injured in Alwar, Bharatpur, Dholpur and Jhunjhunu districts. It also cleared the air of Uttar Pradesh which showed a death based statistic as well.
IMD had informed that the storm is likely to dominate certain regions of North or next three days hence Delhi government had announced the holiday for second shift (evening schools) in Delhi as this is the time when storm might show up. Today it came around 6pm – 7pm and no casualties were recorded so far. Earlier in the day, the IMD issued an amber-coloured alert, indicating severe weather, for parts of Jammu and Kashmir, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Delhi, Chandigarh, western Uttar Pradesh, Sikkim and West Bengal. Several parts of these states could witness thunderstorm and squall with winds gusting up to 50-70 km per hour, the alert said.
Northern belt is under scrutiny for this due to the improper activities in cyclonic behavior far as air is concerned. It is not very unusual when summer time is about to arrive though this year has recorded higher percentage of scale in the storms than last year. Mother nature is certainly getting imbalanced every year due to the environmental destruction being caused by human beings in the very home they want to thrive but nobody exactly cares for future generation. Taking things for granted such as resources available to us on this planet is nothing short of a huge mistake.
