Una receives 76 mm rainfall in 24 hrs.
Heavy to very heavy rains poured in Una taluka of Junagadh district on Sunday afternoon and resumed early on Monday morning. Though the city and surrounding areas have received a good spell this season, the forest areas did not get any rainfall.
According to sources, it started raining heavily at 4 pm on Sunday and lasted for two hours, within which time Met department officials recorded 31 mm of rainfall. "There was waterlogging throughout the town, especially in Madhavbaug and Police Lines which saw knee-deep water. Basement shops in most complexes had water gushing in," a source said.
On Monday morning too it rained from 7 am to 8 am with 35 mm of rainfall being recorded. The area has had up to 1,076 mm this season.
However, rainfall was in a 5 km radius around the town and forest areas of the taluka did not see rain. Maldharis of the area have not been happy with this year's rain as despite good rains in Saurashtra, most wells and water bodies remained dry in the jungles.
Apart from sporadic rains in Rajula and Visavadar talukas, neither Junagadh district nor any other district of Rajkot received rain.
