  • Heavy rains in Mathura kill 2 dust storm in Agra blinds tourists

"Four deaths were reported from Etawah, three from Mathura, and one death each from Agra, Aligarh, Firozabad and Kanpur Rural last night", principal secretary for information Avanish Awasthi told PTI.

The dust storm, with winds blowing up to 60 miles per hour, swept parts of Uttar Pradesh state on Wednesday night, demolishing homes and downing power lines. The storm left 75 dead in UP alone and 91 injured. He rushed back to Agra to meet the families of the victims and injured.

One more person died at Hathras, the police said. Mango crops and other crops were also damaged in incidents. Shakuntala Devi (55) died as electric poll fell on her in Taiti village while Bhagwati (38) died when tractor-trolley overturned in Khanjaravas village.

Although the Braj region was bracing for thunderstorms on Tuesday in keeping with weather predictions, Aligarh and Hathras districts witnessed high-velocity winds accompanied by heavy rain only the next evening.




The National Weather Forecasting Centre has predicted thunderstorms accompanied by squall (wind speed 50-70 kmph) in several States of North and East India on May 13.

Schools and colleges were closed in several districts based on the storm warnings, he said.

District magistrate Chandra bhushan Singh here said that revenue officers were instructed to calculate the damage speedily so that help could be provided to affected persons. The Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who was on a three-day campaign tour to poll-bound Karnataka, had to cut short his tour.

Till date, as many as 124 people have lost their lives due to high-intensity dust storms in Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan earlier this week with the highest casualties in Uttar Pradesh, where about 73 persons were killed. "Go to the villages and extend help to them", he said in a communique.
