GOA: Fear gripped the residents of Tambddem, Igrejawada and Desaiwada in Agonda village of Canacona on Saturday night after water from an overflowing rivulet flooded the areas around their houses.
Around 13 houses were affected by the flooding and residents had to stay awake the entire night, fearing water might enter their homes. “I have inspected the rivulet and it has not only been blocked in some places but has been narrowed down in a few areas in the name of development,” said Canacona mamlatdar Vinod Dalal.
Dalal requisitioned an earthmoving machine on Sunday and got trenches dug in the flooded areas so that stagnated water drained out. While water entered five houses, no major loss was incurred.
