Rain in Maharashtra claims 2 lives
Two persons died after rain pounded several parts of Maharashtra, including the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, where intermittent showers badly hit road traffic.

The rain continued to hit Gadchiroli district in Vidarbha where Bhamragad and Chamorshi taluks witnessed flood-like situations on Wednesday.

Heavy downpour triggered a landslide in Satara ghat and uprooted a tree in Parashuramghat that brought traffic to a crawl in the Mumbai-Goa highway, while boulders fell over the Monkey Hill railway station in the Khandala ghat region.

Reports from Gadchiroli said a major part of the Alapalli-Bhamragad road was inundated and several villagers are out of contact. The neighbouring Chandrapur district, too, received heavy rainfall, while Chhattisgarh’s Bastar region adjoining Gadchiroli has also been pounded.
A woman was killed when water flooded a basement of an under-construction building in Nagpur, and a farmer drowned in floods in Sangli district.

Rain lashing Raigad, Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg districts in the Konkan region increased water levels in the Savitri and Amba rivers.

Heavy downpour also continued in the Koyna catchment area and Mahabaleshwar – the origin of the Krishna river – along with other parts of Kolhapur, Sangli and Satara districts. The Panchganga river in Kolhapur has swelled in several places.
