The Konkan region is known to have a massive rainfall every year. Severe rainfall for non-stop 5 days left Chiplun, Ratnagiri, and few parts of Kolhapur and Satara districts underwater causing landslides and floods. In some parts of Chiplun, water elevated above 20 feet. Many bridges broke, trees collapsed, roads were blocked, and a lot of homes got destroyed due to flood, many were filled with water and mud. Many homes were wrecked and destroyed. The flood also took everything that was in the homes. The flood was compared with the flood of Mumbai of 26th July 2006.
The flood left all the people stranded while being homeless, hungry, drenched in rain with no shelter or any ray of hope.
