The toll in the Maharashtra flood climbed to 149 on Monday with around 100 missing. The number is likely to increase as rescue teams are finding more bodies, particularly from the landslide site at Mahad taluka in the Raigad district.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray is set to tour the flood-hit Chiplun in district Ratnagiri in the Konkan region. He also said that a relief package will be announced soon.
The districts majorly affected by rain are Raigad, Ratnagiri, Sindhudurg, Satara, Sangli, Kolhapur, Mumbai suburbs, Pune and Thane.
