Although the flow of water in the river bed has increased, Ganesh Sonune, Head of Disaster Management, informed that 71 calls have been received during the day to the Disaster Management Department of the Municipal Corporation and the Ward Offices. In this, there are complaints of water entering the house, settlement, and society. There have been seven incidents of tree felling in the city. The Disaster Management Department has also provided water to water-logged sewers.




The Disaster Management Department has taken proper action to restore water in the water-logged places. As rain is forecasted for two more days in the city, the Disaster Management Department of the Municipal Corporation has set up a round-the-clock office in each ward office. These cells include 10 deputy engineers, health inspectors, and others. Also, one JCB, a jetting machine, a truck, and manpower of 25 people have been made available.




Although there is no need to evacuate anyone in the area along the river, as a precautionary measure, temporary accommodation has been arranged in 39 schools for residents of areas likely to be affected by the water.




Heavy rain-affected areas, Sinhagad Roads with large potholes, flooding at Mundhe Vasti Table in Kothrud, flooding in a stream at Tiny Industries in Kondhwa Yewalewadi Water, inundated houses at Amruteshwar Temple in Yerwada, flooding in Fasa Society at Chandni Chowk, water potholes slowing traffic in the city centre, and major jams due to Bhide bridge being submerged are the fundamental issues. Due to the closure of the riverside road, the traffic stress on Kelkar road and Jungli Maharaj road has increased to a great extent. Many roads in the already potholed city were filled with water. Due to this, the entire transportation ecosystem was disturbed.
