It has been a few days since the coastal state is receiving incessant rainfall. Several parts of Goa are getting drenched in heavy downpours triggering chaos and causing damage in many areas. Unfortunately, some places reported incidents of landslides and flooding as well. One of the recent horrifying updates came from the popular Pali waterfall in North Goa. According to a report by The Indian Express, more than 150 people were rescued from the waterfall.

Nestled in Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary, locals and visitors were stranded at different areas of the Pali waterfall. North Goa SP stated updates on how police staff, forest officials, and locals in that region worked together to save over 150 locals and tourists. The operation to save each of them was a long and strenuous process, especially because of the increase in water levels. It took everyone involved about four hours to rescue the stranded people from Sattari’s Pali waterfall and bring them to a safe location.

Three people lost their lives in Kundaim because of the heavy rainfall’s consequences. They were construction workers working on a project. Tragically, a wall collapsed and these three employees were trapped to death. Also, another employee sustained injuries.
