In Gujarat the southern districts have been
receiving heavy rainfall during the past 72 hrs
due to South west monsoon being active over
Konkan-Goa, Saurashtra and Kutch Region.

The trough of low pressure as per IMD weather
reports now lies extending from South Gujarat
Coast to Kerala Coast. The south-west monsoon
is strong over Central Arabian Sea and
moderate to strong over North -East Arabian
Sea and South Arabian Sea. The upper air
cyclonic    circulation   over    Gujarat   &
neighbouring states persists and extends
between 1.5 km and 3.1 km a.s.l.


The state has received 16 mm of rainfall during
the past 24 hrs with cumulative average rainfall
of 568 mm. The taluka/Blocks received on an average more than 100 mm of rainfall while Surat
recorded 144 mm and Rajkot 100 mm during 24 hrs. The occurrence of torrential rains in southern
parts of Gujarat caused flash floods. The floodplains of the rivers system Tapti, Mahi, Narmada
and its tributaries swelled affecting the districts- Valsad, Surat, Navsari, Bharuch and Dangs, and
Vadodara.

 The flooding condition in Valsad, was due to the out flow of water from Daman Ganga reservoir.
Normally the out flow of Daman Ganga is only 0.25 million cusec but due to the excessive flow the
dam authorities released 0.62 million cusec which flooded the down stream stretch. The catchment
area of River Purna overflowed above the higher limit of 23 feet and inundated the low lying
areas in Navsari town and neighbouring villages. In Surat city the low lying areas of Limbayat,
Uddana, Batar and Ulthan were waterlogged. Similar condition prevailed in Bharuch city and
Ankaleshwar but the water level in Narmada dam is being constantly monitored as water stands
at 105 meters against the danger level of 109 meter.
