Bihar floods

Monsoon rains in Bihar have been unstoppable since the last two to three days, with many districts in the state severely waterlogged and flooded.

Although the intensity has reduced a bit in the last 24 hours, the eastern districts such as Purnea, Bhagalpur, and Supaul managed to receive light to moderate rain with one or two heavy spells. In the other parts of states, Rain Gods have shown some mercy by slowing down the rainfall activities.

In a span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Monday, Purnea has recorded 16 mm of rainfall, followed by Bhagalpur 5 mm, Patna 1 mm while traces of rain have been recorded in Gaya.

The meteorologists at Skymet have predicted a further reduction in the Monsoon rains today and there will be only light rain with one or two moderate spells during the next 24 hours. Although rains would taper down, it would take some more time for floodwaters to recede. Hence, precautions must be taken.

Further, no significant rainfall activity is likely over the state for the next two to three days.

It would be then around October 4, wherein moderate rains would return to the state. However, we do not expect showers to be as severe as they were in the last couple of days.

Incessant amounts of rain in the last few days have thrown normal life out of gear in Bihar. Rescue operations have been going on in the state on a large scale and as many as 19 teams of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) have been deployed so far.

The evacuation was carried out in the low lying areas of Patna by NDRF on Sunday and as per the latest data available 235 people were moved to safer places. 2 people have been rescued and 4945 evacuated so far in the flooded state.
