Heavy rainfall continued to lash western parts of state on Friday, keeping normal life off gear. No respite is in sight for West MP as alert for very heavy showers continue.

A woman was killed in Ratlam when a wall of the adjacent dilapidated house collapsed over their home due to heavy rainfall. Three others were injured.

The deceased has been identified as Bhagwantabai Malviya (55), resident of Devi Singh Colony. Pratap Singh Malviya (36) and two children were injured. The house of which the wall collapsed was declared dangerous by municipal authorities ten years ago, sources said.

ALERT
The Regional Meteorological Centre (RMC), Bhopal has issued alert of very heavy rainfall for Hoshangabad, Agar, Ratlam, Ujjain, Alirajpur and Jhabua districts till Saturday afternoon. Also alert for heavy rain (somewhat lower intensity) has been issued for Rajgarh, Shajapur, Khandwa, Khargone, Vidisha, Sehore, Indore, Mandsaur, Barwani and Harda districts.

The director of RMC, Anupam Kashyapi has said that the rainfall activity, particularly in west MP is likely to continue for next two days due to presence of strong weather systems. However, the intensity of rain in eastern MP would reduce as of now and moderate showers would be experienced in Central MP including Bhopal, though some districts here are still under heavy rain alert.

The director said that chances of development of another weather system in the Bay of Bengal are increasing in next two to three days and under its influence another phase of rainfall would commence in eastern MP in coming days. This means that overall the rain activity would continue.
