Parigi: Incessant wind since Tuesday night in Parigi and surrounding areas coupled with intermittent drizzle finally took a turn and resulted in hailstorm. The sudden change in weather resulted in inconvenience to people and travelers.
Huge trees in the premises of R&B guest house were uprooted due to gales snapping power cables, interrupting power supply. Water on the road also interrupted the traffic in Bijapur-Hyderbad highway. Crops like jowar, paddy, mango in Paigi, Rangapur, Sultanpur were damaged.
Ramulu, a farmer was seen crestfallen as his crop of paddy was destroyed. Another farmer, Iswar said, “This is the second time in as many years that we are having erratic weather and as a result, crops are getting damaged. I was looking forward to a selling mangoes but a large number got damaged.”
A heavy hailstorm dmages several mud houses and tiled roofs. There was a sharp decline in day temperature but the respite was no solace to the heavy losses incurred said a farmer.
