Post Heavy rains ravage Gujarat

Heavy rains ravage Gujarat

Heavy rains lashing Gujarat for over a week now have left a trail of destruction killing over 90 people & rendering over 2 lakhs homeless. With the rains continuing unabated, the situation turns grim in India's highly industrialised state.

Quote:



The toll in the Gujarat floods today touched 90 even as the number of displaced touched over two lakh.

Four policemen on their way to rescue passengers of a stranded bus in Kheda district of south Gujarat were killed when their vehicle got stuck in the water. The bodies of two constables have been found. DSP R.S. Sangada said the jeep toppled in the swirling waters and he managed to hold on to the vehicle while the others were washed away.

Earlier today, Cabinet Secretary B.K. Chaturvedi reviewed the situation. Briefing reporters, Home Secretary V.K. Duggal said the situation was serious but under control. He said five districts of South-Central Gujarat — Vadodora, Anand, Kheda, Amhedabad and GandInagar — were the worst hit.

According to the state government, road link between several places, including Ahmedabad, Vadodara and Surat had been cut off. The expressway and the national highway no 8 have been closed. The Baroda airport is partially operational allowing only helicopters to land and take-off.

Duggal said the 230-feet Pratapura Dam, 20 kms from Baroda, had developed a ‘‘a 30-feet breach and water would take at least three days to drain out if it does not increase. The likelihood of Baroda city being waterlogged and flooded cannot be ruled out,’’ he said. Reports from the state say there is a breach in Ajwa and Khera dams as well.

Meanwhile, Home Minister Shivraj Patil, who reached Gujarat on a two-day today, announced a Central assistance of Rs 500 crore to the state, even as CM Narendra Modi demanded a “tsunami-like” package. Patil, who will undertake an aerial survey of major flood-affected areas and submit a report to the Centre on his return tomorrow, said about 40 speed boats from the North-East have been airlifted to the state. Besides the army and the air force, the state has sought the help of the RAF in 12 villages in Ahmedabad. High alert continued in Vadodara, Surat, Navsari, Bharuch and the Dangs.

Re: Heavy rains ravage Gujarat

Last time apun bhi udharich atak gaya tha barish ki vajah se.. No rail, no transport, no khana & no bijlee.. It was just horrible to stay without anything.

Lets hope ki barish thodi kam ho jaaye

Question Re: Heavy rains ravage Gujarat

bhai log
i came to know about a brave man who swam 20-30 km in flood water to reach his wife & kids who are trapped in a train inundated with water.
passengers were waiting for 36 hours for help to reach them. only after watching this brave man they got motivated and all passengers dared to swim out.
who is that brave man and & his details ? anyone ?
