A rescue and relief operation was carried out after sewage water entered Parvat Patiya, Limbayat following heavy rains in Surat. The residents had to wade through knee-deep sewage water after Mithi khadi (creek) started overflowing due to heavy rains in its catchment areas of Bardoli and Tapi district. Some of the residential societies in the low-lying areas in Parvat Patiya including Veer Darshan, Gurunagar, Vambay Awas, and other societies in the interior areas were flooded with the sewage water. About 163 people were rescued from the Mithi Khadi area. Aslam Cyclewala, Congress councilor of Limbayat zone said, 'The creek needs to be deepened to avoid flooding in nearby residential areas. This has become an annual problem during rains leaving people in misery.' A government official said, 'Due to incessant rainfall, as many as 38 roads connecting villages and towns in Tapi district have been closed as precautionary measures and they will soon be restored for commuters.'
