Parts of western Madhya Pradesh continued to reel under floods caused by incessant rain, officials said on Friday, adding that the death toll has reached 70 in the state. However, the intensity of rain lessened in rest of the state on Friday.

Showers were also expected in isolated places in the rest of the state, he added.

Sluice gates of six big and medium reservoirs including Indira Sagar Dam in Khandwa district have been opened as the reservoirs were full, said water resources department’s executive engineer Kamlesh Raikwar.

A joint team of local police and State Disaster Emergency Response Force rescued as many as 117 villagers in Shivpuri on Friday, according to the police.

Superintendent of police, Shivpuri Rajesh Singh Chandel said, “There were 17 children among 117 people rescued.
