In Morbi, Gujarat, a car was caught in swirling water. Later, with the help of the villagers, the car was pulled back out, as people escaped from the drowning automobile. At least three lives were rescued as the car almost submerged in floodwater. Heavy rains in Gujarat have led to severe waterlogging in various parts of the state. On Monday (August 31), a team of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) rescued nine persons from a flooded ashram on the banks of river Narmada river in Vadodara, an official said.

The people who were evacuated by the NDRF, are residents of the Chandod village of the district where a flood-like situation emerged following heavy and continuous rainfall. Parts of Gujarat have been reeling under flash floods caused by heavy monsoon showers for the last 15 days, crippling normal life and affecting thousands of villages. Not just Vadodara, other parts of the state are also severely affected due to heavy rains and authorities are working round the clock to rescue people and mitigate loss of life and property.
