India’s weather department has issued a thunderstorm warning for 21 states for Tuesday as dust storms and squalls were reported from Rajasthan, parts of Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and its surrounding areas on Monday.

Last night’s storm in and around Delhi felled trees and cut power supply to many areas. Delhi government has shut evening schools for the day and district administration in neighboring Ghaziabad and Noida have asked many schools to either shut or take precautions. Schools in Haryana were ordered shut for two days beginning Monday.

Delhi government also issued a list of Do’s and Don’ts.

State governments, state disaster management bodies and India’s National Disaster Management Authority have issued separate advisories and have kept first responders on standby.

The heightened preparedness this time around comes days after at least 124 people were killed and over 300 injured in thunderstorms and lightning over north India.
