Monsoon subdued in north; three perish in UP

Monsoon on Sunday remained subdued in parts of north India, including the national capital.



New Delhi: Monsoon on Sunday remained subdued
in parts of north India, including the national capital, as
three children drowned in a rain-swollen pond in Uttar Pradesh
where major rivers continue to breach danger levels.

Delhi`s maximum temperature was recorded at 36.1 deg C,
two notches above normal, while the minimum settled at 26.1
deg C, normal for this time of the year, the Meteorological
Department said.

The city, with a maximum humidity of 89 per cent,
received only 1.2 mm of rains since last evening.

Three children drowned in Uttar Pradesh`s Gaura village
after they fell into a flooded pond, police said.

All major rivers in the state continued to flow above
the red mark at a number of places, the Central Water
Commission said.

Major rivers including Ganga, Ghagra, Yamuna and Sharda
were swelling due to release of excess water from damns.

Kalagarh Bijnore received 20 mm of rain, Ballia 10 mm
and Hamirpur 7 mm overnight, the MeT office said.

Monsoon was generally inactive in Punjab with some
places like Pathankot, Ferozpur and Jalandhar receiving light
rains.

However, Amritsar, which was lashed by heavy showers,
recorded 67 mm of rain.

In neighbouring Haryana, Ambala district received only
2.4 mm of rain, the weather office said.

An official report said the desert state of Rajasthan
has so far received 427 mm of rain this monsoon against the
normal quota of 341 mm.
