Surat: Two of the five creeks in Surat began to overflow due to rains since Thursday morning.
Creeks in the city generally swell when there is very heavy rainfall in adjacent talukas of Bardoli, Palsana, Kamrej.
However, Limbayat, Bhatena and some areas of Udhna witnessed severe waterlogging.“Due to the embankment on Mithi khadi, we had some protection this time and there was not much overflow,” an official from Limbayat zone said.
