Met department has predicted heavy to very heavy showers at isolated places in the hilly areas in Pune, Kolhapur and Satara districts of Maharashtra on Wednesday.

The forecast released on Tuesday afternoon is set to increase the worries of the administration as Kolhapur and Sangli districts in western Maharashtra are still struggling to emerge from the massive floods that had swamped the region.

Many dams, including Koyna, Warana and Radhanagari, are located at the foothills of the Sahyadri mountain range in the region.

Huge influx of water flowing down the mountains and hills into river beds in the region was largely responsible for triggering unprecedented floods, especially in Sangli and Kolhapur, where water levels are yet to recede completely even after nine days.

The floods had displaced over four lakh people, who had to be evacuated to safer places by various agencies.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecast light to moderate showers across Maharashtra for rest of the week after Wednesday.

Heavy rains had also affected Satara, Pune and Solapur districts in the region.

The Indian Air Force (IAF) crew airlifted the marooned tourists in MI-17 helicopter and the Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH) Dhruv, in batches from a guest house near the Virupapura gadde (island) temple at the Hampi heritage site to the Vijayanagar airport, the official said.
