India consists of many regions which have different atmospheric conditions, making it one of the most diverse countries in the world in the area of weather and climate. The meteorological department of India follows the international standard of four seasons.
Cyclonic weather in many parts of eastern India is regular for the past few years.
According to the statement given by the Director-General of IMD Mrutyunjay Mohapatra cyclone JAWAD is expected to make landfall between Puri and Berhampur of Odisha and the low-pressure area is likely to intensify into a depression by December 2. The wind speed of the cyclone is predicted to be up to 60 to 70 km per hour.
Apart from that present climate conditions of India are getting worse day by day. Smoke coming from automobiles and emissions from industrials, dust, and weather patterns make Delhi the world’s most polluted capital. according to the Air Quality Index or AQI below 50 are considered good and under 100 satisfactory. Shockingly Delhi is above 300 at present and in some areas, it is 400.
In the parts of Noida, it’s nearly 500. The government has already closed the construction work and also some schools to ensure protection from toxic air and smoke. “First, we need to understand that we are also responsible for the rising pollution levels. From our end, we need to cut down, whatever possible, that is leading to pollution. We should not add on to this problem,” Dr. Manoj Sharma, senior consultant, internal medicine, Fortis Hospital, Vasant Kunj said.
Stay home, stay safe and wear the mask. Take proper precautions.
