India is a country that never fails to amaze us with its serene beauty. 
Recently, a video was shared by the Railway Ministry, in which a train passing near Dudhsagar waterfall in Goa was stopped due to heavy rain. The train came to a halt after the waterfall started releasing large volumes of water. The increased flow could be seen in the video. 

 

Dudhsagar Falls is amongst India's tallest waterfalls with a height of 310 metres and an average width of 30 metres.
During monsoon, the Dudhsagar falls or 'Sea of Milk' are fed by rain, resulting in a huge gush of water. The area around Dudhsagar falls is covered with deciduous forests and has a very rich biodiversity.

With India  Meteorological Department's prediction, heavy rainfall continued in parts of Konkan and Goa. The weather office also said that heavy to very heavy rainfall is likely on July 30 and 31. An orange alert has been issued by the IMD for these days.
