At least 17 people were killed and another nine were injured across Moradabad, Muzaffarnagar, Meerut, Amroha, Bareilly, Badaun and Sambhal districts after another thunderstorm hit the region late on Friday. Several cities were plunged into darkness for hours as hundreds of tree and electricity poles were uprooted because of high-speed winds.
A UP government spokesperson said on Saturday that most of the deaths were caused due to falling of trees and house collapse.
Moradabad bore the maximum brunt of the storm, with as many as seven deaths reported from the district, followed by three deaths from Sambhal, the state government spokesperson said.
In Moradabad, a major tragedy was averted at an exhibition ground here after the local administration swung into action to rescue hundreds of women and children who had come to visit an ongoing exhibition.
In neighbouring Sambhal, a tin sheet flying in the strong winds slit a man’s throat. In another incident, a wall collapsed on a woman when she was shifting her cattle to a safer location. Another man died in maize field when a tree fell up on him.
In Meerut, two people, including a minor girl, were killed in the storm. A 12-year old girl died after a tin shade landed on the mother-daughter duo coming out of a temple. The girl died on the spot while her mother was rushed to a local hospital where she is stable. Over half a dozen locals, injured in varying degrees, were admitted to nearby hospitals.
Two deaths were reported each from Badaun and Muzaffarnagar, while one death was reported from Amroha.
Five persons were injured in Amroha, three in Moradabad, two in Muzaffarnagar and one in Badaun.
With fresh deaths still being reported on Saturday, the toll may further go up.
Meanwhile, UP’s Shahjahanpur district was left in complete darkness after the thunderstorm lashed the region and uprooted more than 150 electricity poles. Considering the extent of the damage caused, the restoration work may take over 10 days, officials said.

From The Times of India
Hours after overnight rain, city wakes up to monsoon
Racing across north India to cover the distance from Bihar to Rajasthan in two days flat, the monsoon arrived in Delhi-NCR on Thursday, a day ahead of its normal onset date.
Overnight showers laid the ground for the IMD’s announcement of monsoon’s advent in the morning. Since then, the city remained overcast with intermittent light rain in most areas.
“It’s not very unusual for the monsoon to cover great distances in a short time. It all depends on the conditions. We have been seeing steady easterly wind flows characteristic of the monsoon,” said B P Yadav from IMD’s regional centre here.
Safdarjung recorded 20.4mm of rain till 8.30am on Thursday, and another 1mm till late evening. The showers were heavier in south Delhi and adjoining areas, with Palam having recording 32.8mm by the morning.
The wet weather led to a further dip in temperatures from Wednesday, with the maximum settling at 35.2 degrees C and the minimum dropping to 24.2 degrees C, four notches below normal.
The southwest monsoon now covers Chandigarh, Delhi, eastern Gujarat, entire Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, most parts of east Rajasthan, some parts of west Rajasthan, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh.
Rain, including heavy showers, was reported from several parts of northern India. Mathura reported torrential rain, with 98mm being recorded in six hours on Wednesday evening, which resulted in some localities being submerged under as much as five feet of water.
This year, the monsoon reached Kerala three days ahead of its normal onset date. It battered the western coast in the first half of the month before stalling over central India for 11 days. The rain-bearing system got reactivated earlier this week and has made up for lost time, covering ground over north India in four days that normally takes over two weeks.
