From April 17, the complete Telangana state is under high heat wave warning, says the weather officials.
Hyderabad: The blues over Telangana state will have dense clouding under the impact of a low-pressure zone that has made over the southeast Bay of Bengal. There will be no drop in temperature. Weather bureaucrats said that the low-pressure area could focus on a depression over the next 24 hours.
It was so far to suggestively influence the weather here, wheather bureaucrats said in Visakhapatnam. The system is predictable to move ahead from the AP coast to Myanmar or Bangladesh. From April 17th, weather administrators have put out a heat wave cautionary for April 17 for the whole state. The city had recorded 40.8ºC; Mahbubnagar, Adilabad, and Nizamabad recorded the highest temperature of 43ºC.
Heat waves have sued 35 lives in Telangana state so far, warning the state government to issue high alerts in all TS districts to take safety measures to minimize the influence of the usual weather conditions.
The greatest temperature is expected to hover beyond 40 degrees Celsius in the next 24 hours in several parts of the state, an official said on Wednesday.
“We have given out heat wave alerts to all TS district collectors and bureaucrats concerned. People are counseled not to venture out through afternoon when the temperature is at peak stage,” principal secretary of Revenue B.R. Meena told media.
“We have also probed the rural water department to be equipped with adequate water storage amenities. The death toll so far stated is 35,” he said.
In a previous release given out over a week ago, the Telangana state government had said as many as 66 lives were gone because of the heat waves in the state. Yet, Meena had denied the figure.
A directive has been dispensed to all concerned sections saying construction laborers and other associated workers are not involved in work through the peak heat phase, he told.
The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has foretold that heatwave conditions are expected to prevail at remote places in the state tomorrow. The highest extreme temperature of 44 degrees Celsius was logged at Nalgonda and Ramagundam in the state on Friday.
