Today at 1:15 noon severe rain with high velocity of wind with hailstorm suddenly kept people of Ranchi under fear. It was type of hurricane with remained only for few seconds but made great loss to the people. Force of the wind was so strong that it twisted one of the tree in circular road. Asbestos were seen flying in the sky. Impact was so great that even the Iron rod pillars with advertisement board were also seen flying. It was caused by the low pressure and strong winds. Storms are created when a center of low pressure develops, with a system of high pressure surrounding it. This combination of opposing forces can create winds and result in the formation of storm clouds, such as the cumulonimbus. Small, localized areas of low pressure can form from hot air rising off hot ground, resulting in smaller disturbances such as dust devils and whirlwinds.From last few days the temperature of Ranchi city was above 41 degree centigrade which is unusual as Ranchi was known as the summer capital of Bihar, Jharkhand united before 1970s.
