Jammu: Heavy rains lashed in Jammu region early morning on Wednesday thus water-logging roads and causing trouble to commuters.
However, MeT has also issued a warning and forecast a fresh spell of rain in the next few days. Rain water gushed inside the houses in many low lying areas of Jammu city.
The water level in River Tawi also swelled due to continuous rain in the upper reaches. The rain water entered many houses in low lying areas like Bhagwati Nagar, Talab Tillo, Jewel Chowk, Rajinder Nagar, Qasim Nagar, Vinayak Bazar, Dogra Chowk, Gandhi Nagar, Sainik Colony, Green Belt and many others.
A weatherman said that currently, it’s raining at many places in Jammu and at scattered places in Kashmir.
“This spell of rain is most likely to decrease gradually from the next half and hour and stop thereafter,” he said.
He added that in the next four days, intermittent light to moderate rain is likely especially in morning and evening during the next two days and mainly dry thereafter.
“There is no forecast of any major rainfall for the next 10 days,” he said.
