Following heavy rains in Pune and nearby areas, Khadakwasla dam, which provides water to the city, reached 99% of its capacity. Water was released from the dam into Mutha river at regular intervals today so that the dam doesn't overflow. People living in the low-lying areas downstream have been warned to move to higher ground. Normal life in the capital has been badly affected. The IMD has predicted more rains in the catchment area of the Khadakwasla dam. The city has been witnessing good showers for the past couple of days. The heavy showers are a result of the low pressure over the Bay of Bengal.
