Rain shocks UPSC NOTE


  • Rainfall from June-September is expected to be 6% more than the 87 cm (which is considered to be the average rainfall the country receives during these months), in this year according to India Meteorological Department (IMD) forecast

  • The IMD’s climate models suggest a 30% chance of “excess” rains — defined as more than 10% of what is usual

  • Two arid monsoon months and torrential rains in the last two may be fine for agriculture but is likely to result in extreme floods and — as has been observed in the past — immense damage to lives, livelihoods and infrastructure.

  • The 2018 floods in Kerala continue to be a reminder of how vulnerable India is to natural disasters

  • States must, at the soonest, draw up emergency plans from their disaster-management modules to bolster infrastructure, prepare evacuation plans, conduct audits of the structural stability of dams and their distress-signalling network and ensure that broader early-warning networks are in place. 

  • India’s farmers, a majority of whom continue to be dependent on rain-fed agriculture, must also be informed of the possibility of a stronger, second half of the monsoon and incorporate these in their sowing operations.
