Jagbudi, Vashishthi, Shashtri, Sonavi, Kajali, Kodavali, Muchkundi and Bavnadi rivers have been flowing above their respective danger marks since Monday morning, local administration said.

"Under the influence of formation of low pressure area and intensification of monsoon flow, the west coast is expected to receive heavy rainfall, hence, alert may be kept for the rise in river water levels of sub-basins of Vashishthi and Terekhol Tillari in Raigad, Ratnagiri, and Sindhudurg districts," an advisory from the Central Water Commission (CWC) said.

In fact, the CWC advisory had a warning for the entire Konkan belt starting from Palghar in the north till Sindhudurg in the south Konkan stating that due to continuous rainfall scenario, surface flow has increased over the region, hence more alert has to be kept in these districts.
