Heavy rains causes flash floods in Satna; army begins rescue operations

Bhopal: Heavy rains in the past 48 hours have led to flood-like situation in many parts of Madhya Pradesh, throwing normal life out of gear.

Army personnel have been pressed into service to rescue people marooned following inundation at many places.

Many villages were cut off from the rest of the state as the heavy downpour resulted in submergence of various roads.

Most areas in the state were lashed by heavy to light rain in the last two days, following which the water level in the Narmada, Betwa, Jamani, Dhasan and Kopra rivers rose considerably.

The meteorological department warned of heavy rains in Chhatarpur, Teekamgarh, Satna, Raisen, Hoshangabad, Guna, Ashoknagar, Batul, Vidisha and Rajgarh and other places in the state in the next 24 hours.
