As Cyclone Biparjoy brought heavy rains to several parts of Gujarat, a cattle-rearer duo of father and son died while trying to save their goats stuck in a flooded ravine in Bhavnagar district on Thursday.
Several parts of Gujarat including Bhavnagar received considerable rain on Thursday as the cyclone made landfall in Kutch district.
Following a spell of rain since morning, water started flowing in a ravine passing through Bhandar village near Sihor town,
said Mamlatdar (revenue official) S N Vala.
In Kutch district, which was the worst-affected region,
there were no reports of deaths, said collector Amit Arora.
“Thanks to the mass evacuation we had carried out in advance,
no one has died in Kutch so far due to any incident linked to the cyclone.
Some trees and electric poles were uprooted due to winds blowing at a speed of nearly 80 kilometers per hour,” he said.
