Vikasnagar (Uttarakhand) [India], August 27(ANI): A team of State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) rescued 20-30 villagers and helped them cross a raging river in Tauli Bhud of Vikasnagar on Friday.

Very heavy downpour has caused waterlogging in several parts of the state, damaging roads and other infrastructure.
