Heavy rain continued to pound Goa even as reports of tree fall and inundation of roads and low-lying areas kept coming pouring in from different parts.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Friday has forecast excess rainfall for the next two weeks till July 13 in the State.

The State received 89.3 mm of rain in the last 24 hours further reducing the seasonal deficit to 28.3 per cent.

The highest rainfall was reported in Mapusa at 147 mm followed by 141.8 mm in Mormugao and 141 mm in Dabolim.

The capital city of Panaji received 118.6 mm of rain while Quepem recorded the least of 20 mm.

Meanwhile, fishermen have been warned not to venture out into the sea even as winds are expected to be gusty, peaking from 40 to 45 kmph to 55 kmph.

The copious amount of rain in the last one week has affected normal life in the State.

The flooding of roads and water entering into some of the shops in Panaji has been a cause of concern for the administration which is grappling with the ongoing “Smart city” works in the capital city.
