A high alert has been issued in Gujarat and Rajasthan after the Met office has forecast heavy rain in the next four days. Nearly 25,000 people have been evacuated to safety across Gujarat after several districts in the north and central parts of the state were inundated. In Rajasthan, where two people have died in floods, Air Force choppers were conducting sorties of the affected areas and other aircraft are kept on stand-by. Schools have been shut in Jodhpur, Sirohi and Jalore, the worst-hit parts of the state. The National Disaster Response Force and other rescue agencies are working round-the-clock to evacuate people from flooded areas.
