What Do We Know?

This time, the cause of the hail storm will be slightly different. The entire country has been enveloped in the Northern Cold Wave that’s been mainly affecting regions of North India – Kashmir, Himachal, Punjab etc. But the hail storm on 14th will be coming from the Eastern Winds from Bay Of Bengal. It is most likely to affect regions of NCR from Wednesday (13th onwards).
