Continuous rainfall has also resulted in widespread destruction across Madhya Pradesh, especially in the Narmada river belt where a flood-like situation has emerged. Following heavy rains, the Narmada river is flowing about 10 metres above its danger mark of 964 metres in Hoshangabad district, near Bhopal.
The problem of the people living near the river might increase as the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted heavy rainfall in Madhya Pradesh during the next 24 hour.
