IANS  |  New Delhi 

Rivers in north Konkan, north and are likely to swell due to rainfall caused by cyclone Ockhi, the Water Resources Ministry said on Tuesday.

Water level is expected to rise in the Godavari basin, Damanganga and its tributaries, Mahi river and its tributaries in Gujarat, Sabarmati basin, east flowing rivers between Mahanadi and Godavari rivers, Krishna river and its tributaries and in the basin of river Pennar, a Ministry statement said.

The statement said heavy rainfall is likely in north Konkan, north and and this is likely to lead to the river levels in these areas to rise rapidly.
