Abu Road region was disconnected for three days from the rest of the world following unprecedented rainfall, the heaviest in the history Mount Abu, which started on July 26 and continued incessantly for five days.
The heavy rainfall caused severe disruption of public life and infrastructure. As the conditions of the roads and bridges deteriorated, it became difficult for people to travel from home to work and many were stuck in schools, offices and other market places. The entry into most villages was blocked, and this restricted relief teams from entering the region. Panic and distress were the obvious outcomes of the situation.
