Gujarat, Sep 12: Several parts of Bharuch district are facing a flood-like situation as the water-level of river Narmada has risen due to heavy rainfall.
According to an ANI tweet, Bharuch district collector, MD Modiya said, “Around 4000 people from 23 villages have been rescued. The river is flowing at 31.85 metres which is much higher than the danger level.”
But he termed the situation as stable. Two teams from NDRF and one from SDRF are on standby in Bharuch.
Over 1,000 people living along the banks of the Narmada river were shifted to safer places after its water level rose to 31 feet due to discharge from the Sardar Sarovar Dam even as rains continued to lash the state, an official informed.
