The intensity and impact of the cloudburst of July 26 and its aftermath in the areas of Kalyan, Ulhasnagar, Ambernath, and Badlapur was as bad (many would claim it to be far worse) as it was in Mumbai.
Badlapur was the worst affected in this belt. Water levels reached upto the second story in many areas. Quite a number of people and animals lost their lives. Many escaped with their lives, but lost everything else. These are pictures of Badlapur during the flood (It took me much asking around and following up with people before I managed to acquire these. Many thanks to Girish Chandwadkar who finally found the pictures for me.) taken by Abhijit Pradhan. The pictures were taken using a camera phone. Hence the resolution is not sharp and the pictures are not of a high quality. But they still can give you a very good idea about what Badlapur experienced on that terrible Tuesday.
