Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan will carry out an aerial survey of the flooded areas and the places along the Narmada river in Sehore and Hoshangabad districts that were hit by hailstorm.

The Army has also been pressed into service to help the district administration.

The Army has been called in to rescue people from flooded areas of Hoshangabad district in Madhya Prdesh on Saturday following heavy rains, an official said. Torrential rains lashed parts of Hoshangabad district, inundating several of its areas and causing the Narmada river to flow above danger mark there, the official said.

“While two teams of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) are already posted in the district, two more will
be deployed soon,” Hoshangabad divisional commissioner Rajnish Shrivastava said. “Moreover, the Army has also been pressed into service to help the district administration. It will be reaching the region soon,” he said.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan will carry out an aerial survey of the flooded areas and the places
along the Narmada river in Sehore and Hoshangabad districts that were hit by hailstorm, the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) said.
