Followed by the havoc created by super cyclone Amphan in West Bengal and Odisha, the effect now touched the South Indian states but discursively. According to the recent warning issued by the India Meteorological Department (IMD), two Telugu states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana will experience hot dry weather in the coming few days with the mercury soaring to even above 45 degree Celsius.
The department officials stated that this has come as a fallout of cyclone Amphan which had pushed in Northwesterly dry winds in the area. Though it has been a lockdown with people refraining themselves from coming out, the soaring temperatures have come as a bane to people looking forward to resuming work after the state government granted some relaxations following a complete lockdown for almost two months.
On Thursday, Vijayawada recorded the highest temperature of 44 °C in Andhra Pradesh while, in Telangana, Nizamabad recorded 42 °C while Ramagundam recorded 40°C. On this note, the department issued an advisory to the citizen to stay indoors unless there is an emergency that warrants venturing out. The dry heat conditions and severe heatwave across the state will continue till 25 May.
