Scenes of destruction: Pouring woes for villagers in Gujarat’s Jamnagar and Rajkot after unprecedented rainfall

It’s pouring woes for thousands of villagers in Gujarat’s Jamnagar and Rajkot districts. Everywhere there were scenes of destruction caused by the unprecedented rainfall. Broken roads, floating household items, damaged bridges and flattened farmlands are the usual sights after the furious downpour. In the worst floods in over a decade witnessed in Jamnagar, close to 41,000 hectares of farm land were completely washed away. It is a blow to the farmers who were wary of crop damage due to rain-deficit barely a fortnight ago. Around 447 villages have been badly damaged by the floods in Jamnagar alone. Eighty four villages are without power as electricity poles collapsed and transformers damaged. Chief minister Bhupendra Patel visited a few flood-hit villages in Jamnagar, a day after officially assuming the top post.
