Maharashtra rains: Devendra Fadnavis, the deputy chief minister and a native of Nagpur, announced on X that he is always keeping an eye on the city’s rain situation.
“Due to last night’s torrential rainfall in Nagpur, Ambaji Lake overflowed, and water has now flooded certain areas. In barely 4 hours, the collector told me, it rained more than 100 mm. The Municipal Commissioner and Nagpur Collector have arrived on the scene, and prompt action is being taken. It has been mandated that assistance be given first to the residents trapped in low-lying areas. Two teams from the SDRF and one from the NDRF have been sent out to conduct rescue operations. We communicate with the government frequently and keep an eye on the issue, he stated on X.
In isolated locations in the Nagpur, Bhandara, and Gondia districts, “severe/moderate thunderstorm with lightning” is expected to persist, according to the Nagpur center of the India Meteorological Department (IMD). In some regions, “intense rain at isolated places” is also a possibility, according to the report. Many locations in the Wardha district, as well as a few spots in the Chandrapur, Bhandara, and Gondia districts, are likely to have light to moderate rainfall. It went on to say that there was a good chance of isolated areas of light rain across Amravati, Yavatmal, and Gadchiroli.
