Gujarat floods

Updated on Aug 12, 04:30 PMThe Indian Air Force has rescued 125 people stranded on a road in Kutch, Gujarat. After heavy rains, this road was washed away.

Updated on Aug 12, 2:50 PMIn view of heavy rains in the state of Gujarat, the death toll in the state has now risen to 31 after 12 deaths were seen in Saurashtra in the last 24 hours. Out of this, 19 deaths were seen in rain related mishaps, 16 in incidents of wall collapse, five fishermen have also reportedly drowned after boats capsized while 20 remain missing.

Published on Aug 12, 08:50 AM: The Well Marked Low-Pressure Area has now shifted over the Northeast Arabian Sea and the adjoining Sindh region. Due to this movement, the rainfall activities have significantly decreased over Saurashtra and Kutch during the last 24 hours. While only scattered light rains were recorded in the Gujarat region.

According to our meteorologists, no significant activity is expected over the state of Gujarat during the next few days. However, due to the availablity of enough moisture along with rising temperatures, chances of occasional light rains cannot be ruled out.

With rains receding, the flood-like situation that was prevailing due to torrential rains would also improve now. And gradually things will come under control.

Rescue operations too, that were going on in the state on a large scale would ease out now. All the rescue operations have been successful until now.

The medium-lift helicopters and transport aircraft from IAF have been operating from various Air Force and civil airfields, thus supplying food and other essentials in the affected areas.

The Monsoon rains have been monstrous during the last few days in Gujarat. In the wake of heavy downpour, at least 19 people lost their lives in the state on Friday night. While due to incessant rains in Saurashtra and Central Gujarat region, 16 deaths due to wall/building collapse were reported on Saturday.
