Heavy rains may cause waterlogging in low-lying areas. Given the upcoming season, farmers should store food grains stored in an open sky or barn in a safe place.
In agricultural mandis, cover the grains kept in the open sky and keep them in a safe place so that they can be saved from getting wet. Used solar systems can also be damaged by sudden strong winds, so keep them in a safe place.
If you hear the sound of thunderstorms or you see lightning flashing, do not take shelter under the tree.
Avoid taking shelter under big trees and in raw houses in times of severe depression.
Damage is likely due to the breaking of electrical wires and falling of poles due to high speed.
