A monsoon storm as studied on 5 day mean charts
The storm in question followed a long track. It crossed the coast near Puri on the morning of 22 August 1957 and finally broke up over the Kashmir Himalayas on 26 August 1957. Under its influence, heavy to very heavy rain occurred in the central parts of the country, the West Coast, coastal Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, the Punjab (I) and Jammu and Kashmir. According to press reports the Kashmir Valley from Anantnag to Sepore - a 75 mile stretch was completely under water excepting the small areas comprising the city of Srinagar and some neighbouring villages. The Godavari near Bhadrachalam and the Narbada near Indore were in high spate, dislocating rail and road traffic in those areas. The river Ravi was also in spate threatening the city of Amritsar.
