Since the beginning of this month, the entire state has been inundated by exceptional rains, with the Saurashtra and Kutch sub-division recording a 267 percent excess rainfall (223 mm against the normal of 61 mm). Eastern Gujarat, on the other hand, has experienced a 111 percent excess, with 244 mm accumulating against the normal of 115 mm since July 1.
