AHMEDABAD/BHOPAL: Heavy rains have hit several parts of Gujarat resulting in a flood-like situation in several southern and western districts of the state. The situation was the same in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra.

Prime Minister Modi called Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel and assured him of all possible help from the central government, the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) said in a statement. Water levels in some rivers have risen, flooding low-lying areas, including Ahmedabad, which received a heavy downpour in the past 24 hours.

In Ahmedabad, 6,000 people living in low areas have been displaced. As many as 13 National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams as well as National Disaster Response Force (SDRF) personnel were deployed. Over 400 people have been evacuated from Chota Udaipur, 550 from Navsari and over 450 from Valsad in southern Gujarat, official sources said on Monday.

Due to the incessant rains, 388 roads, including national highways and panchayat roads, were closed to motor traffic. Part of the famous Arjun Nath temple located in Chhota district of Udaipur collapsed on Monday due to incessant rains. No one was reportedly injured in the incident.

At least 174 villages in Gujarat lost their power supply in the heavy rains. Most of the villages are in the Chhota Udaipur tribal district. Navsari district authorities were also on alert as the Kaveri and Ambika rivers flowed above the danger mark. Meanwhile, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted heavy to very heavy rains over the next five days in southern Gujarat, and heavy downpours in central parts of the state and Saurashtra.

Heavy rains since Sunday have disrupted normal life in large parts of Madhya Pradesh, particularly the state capital, Bhopal, and Chhindwara district. Sausar in Chhindwara reported heavy rains, causing flash flooding in low-lying areas, forcing traffic closure on the main highway linking the city to Nagpur for about an hour.

Bhopal recorded 92mm of rain since Monday evening, 133% more than the same period last year. According to data released by the Met Department on Monday, of the MP’s 52 districts, 27, including Bhopal, reported excessive rain and seven districts reported normal rainfall.
