Heavy rainfall lashed the city on Saturday evening. However, Regional Meteorological Centre (RMC) called it pre-monsoon showers. “We are taking it as pre-monsoon because the exact scenario can be described on Sunday onwards when it covers 75 per cent area,” A D Tathe, Regional Director, RMC, Nagpur told The Hitavada.

Moderate to heavy rain with one or two very heavy spells are expected over Vidarbha. Tathe predicted a dry spell for 10-15 days after June 12 and constant monsoon from June 25 in Nagpur district. The areas along cement roads saw waterlogging. In Ramdaspeth, thanks to lack of proper illumination and reflector-marked dividers, a car suffered damage. Choked storm water drains, street-lights going off, also created problems for citizens.
