News Agencies | Updated on: 6 August 2019, 13:55 IST

Flooded houses, abandoned animals- the sight of streets in Walva, Urun Islampur and Sangli went from normal to havoc after the relentless rains battered these regions within 48 hours.

The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) team is carrying out rescue operations in these three areas and are evacuating locals whose houses have been completely deluged in water.

The NDRF team is wading through knee-deep water to carry our rescue operations. Some of personnel were also seen sailing in inflated boats for rescue and relief operation.

Yesterday, in Gujarat's Surat also, NDRF and Indian Air Force were deployed to carry out rescue operations after water burst in to the city after the river swelled owing to days of incessant rain across the state.
