Western Railway has announced that all Mumbai-bound trains from Gandhidham have been canceled due to heavy rains and water-logging at various locations. Howrah and Kamakhya trains have also been rescheduled for tomorrow morning.

Heavy rains continued in many places in Gujarat on Friday and the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a warning of "heavy to very heavy rainfall" over the next two days. The downpour threw normal life out of gear at many places in central and south Gujarat, resulting in swollen rivers and water-logging in residential areas.

At least 11 people have lost their lives in Gujarat in last 24 hour as incessant rains wreak havoc in the state, said Chief Minister Vijay Rupani on Saturday. Rescue operation to evacuate people to a safer place is underway. So far around 6,000 people have been shifted.
