After striking the shores of Mumbai, Monsoon knocked the doors of Gujarat on Sunday. Moderate to heavy rainfall was experienced in Saurashtra and Gir region of the state.
In some of the areas, like, Kodinaar, Junagarh and Sutrapada heavy rainfall measuring upto 15 inches was measured. In Gir Forest, over 12 inches of rainfall was observed.
The rainfall came as a repiste to hundreds of animals housed in Gir National Park who were suffering from intense heat waves for the past few weeks.
Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) is expecting that the Monsoon will be able to cover the entire state of Maharshtra and Gujarat in the next two or three days.
