Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Sunday morning took stock of the rain situation in Nagpur and visited homes to interact with flood-affected families.


Extremely heavy rainfall of 109 millimetres in three hours, including 90 mm between 2am and 4am on Saturday, inundated several areas of the city, he said.

The National Disaster Response Force and its state counterpart SDRF are undertaking rescue and relief operations across Vidarbha’s largest city, he informed.

In the morning, Fadnavis visited areas in the vicinity of Ambazari Lake, the city’s largest waterbody, which breached its boundaries on Saturday due to heavy rains.

Four persons, including a 53-year-old paralysed, bedridden woman, died in rain-related incidents, while more than 400 people had to be shifted to safety on Saturday.



Late Saturday night, Fadnavis and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari chaired a meeting to review the situation.
