Surendranagar (Gujarat), Sept 20 : Authorities in Surendranagar in Gujarat are gearing up to evacuate marooned villagers after floodwaters submerged over 20 villages in the last three days.
Many places in the area have turned into virtual islands making movement difficult.
The local administration along with fire brigade team has chipped in for rescuing hundreds of stranded villagers who are deprived of daily requirements.
"We are providing food materials to the affected families. Once the water starts receding, we will set up camps to check the spread of diseases. We are sending chemicals for the disposal of dead cattle," said Anandi Ben Patel, state Revenue Minister.
