Around four houses, declared dangerous prior by AMC had collapsed this morning during the showering thunderstorm. The schools and colleges have already declared holiday as there were areas in the metropolitan logged with almost 3 feet water halting the milieu of locals. The city has nearly crossed the average seasonal rainfall count of 776 mm, and the quantity may exceed while looking at the conditions. The trains of Kalol and Gandhinagar routes are on halt, and not a single taluka out of all the 250 talukas of Gujarat has received less than 150 mm of rainfall this time.
