The state government is also planning to build infrastructure around Ambari Lake to mitigate the damage caused by rising water levels. Four people died on Saturday in rain-related incidents, including a 53-year-old woman who suffered from paralysis. While more than 400 people were sent to safe places. Fadnavis and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari chaired a meeting to review the situation on Saturday night.

Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis took stock of the rain situation in Nagpur on Sunday morning and visited the homes of flood-affected families. He said that 109 mm rain fell in three hours, of which 90 mm rain fell from 2 am to 4 am on Saturday. Meanwhile, many areas of the city were flooded. The Deputy Chief Minister said that National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) are engaged in rescue and relief operations in the largest city of Vidarbha. About 10,000 houses have been affected, he told reporters. Mud has entered the houses.

The administration is providing medicines and helping clean up the flood-affected areas. A lot of damage has been done. “If some steps were taken earlier, we could have reduced the damage,” Fadnavis said. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) had issued an orange alert but could not have predicted such heavy rainfall in such a short period of time. There is always something to learn from these tragedies. The Deputy Chief Minister had in the morning visited the areas around Ambari Lake, the city’s largest water reservoir, whose fence was breached by heavy rains on Saturday. Fadnavis said, the wall and other structures protecting the river Nag will have to be rebuilt.
