Shimla: Himachal Pradesh may again experience very heavy rainfall in the next three days, a weather department official said here today.

“The entire state is likely to experience heavy to very heavy spells of rainfall from July 4 to 6,” Manmohan Singh, meteorological department director here, told.

According to Met terminology, “heavy” rain ranges from 64.5 to 124.4 mm in a day, and “very heavy” rain from 124.5 to 244.4 mm in 24 hours.

Official sources said 20 people were killed and 1,000 houses were damaged in the June 16-18 downpour that triggered massive landslides, blocking many roads, in the state’s Kinnaur district.
