Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand and Assam remain threatened by flooding according to data from more than 50 Central Water Commission (CWC) stations in these states, the CWC said on Friday.

One station in Bihar shows an extreme flood situation, while another 28 – 18 in Bihar, seven in Uttar Pradesh and one in Assam, Jharkhand and West Bengal – face a serious flood situation. In addition, 24 stations – 12 in Bihar, seven in Uttar Pradesh and five in Assam – are experiencing a higher-than-normal flood situation, according to the CWC flood bulletin.

An influx forecast has been issued for 19 dams and dams: seven of them in Karnataka, four in Jharkhand, three in Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, and one in West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh.

Meanwhile, the Ganges Basin comprising much of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal has seen continuous flooding due to the combined effect of runoff from the Yamuna River and tributaries from the northern Ganges, including those from Nepal. .

The main Ganges flows in severe flood situations from Patna (Bihar) to Murshirabad (West Bengal). From Praygraj to Ballia (both in Uttar Pradesh), it is descending to a steady state, while from Patna and downstream, it is flowing in an upward trend.

“The alert can be maintained in the districts of Prayagraj, Varanasi, Ghazipur (UP), Buxar, Patna, Munger and Bhagalpur (Bihar), Sahibganj (Jharkhand) and Malda, and Murshirabad (West Bengal). If the maximum influx is exceeded the water level of the main stem of the Ganges in Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal in the next two to three days, “said the bulletin.

Currently, Ganga, at the CWC Hathidah site in Patna district, flows above the high flood level mark. The current water level observed at the site is 43.22 m and the expected water level at 8 am on Saturday is 43.29 m.

The middle reaches of the Ganges in districts such as Badaun and Farrukhabad (Uttar Pradesh) are in flood situations above normal. The Ghaghra River in the Barabanki, Ayodhya and Ballia (UP) and Siwan and Saran (Bihar) districts flows in an above-normal flood situation.

The Sone and Punpun rivers flow in a severe flood situation in Patna, and the Rapti flows in an above-normal situation in the Balarampur (UP) district, he said.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) forecast heavy rains over the Rapti in the next 24 hours, according to the statement, and the suggested alert could be maintained in the districts of Shravasti, Siddharth Nagar, Basti, Sant Kabir Nagar and Gorakhpur (UP) .

Currently, the flood that originated in the tributaries of the Yamuna last week is passing through the Ganges, and it may take another three to five days to completely pass through. In such a situation, new runoff created due to heavy rains in the basins of the northern tributaries of the Ganges may not flow into the Ganges easily. The flood situation in districts such as Ballia and Praygraj (UP), and Saran, Bhagalpur, Katihar (Bihar) may be exacerbated, the CWC said.

In Bihar, the Kosi river in Supaul, Khagaria and Katihar districts, Bagmati in Sitamarhi, Muzzafarpur and Darbhanga districts, Gandak in Kushinagar, Gopalganj, Muzaffarpur and Vaishali districts, Adhwara in Darbhananda, Kamla and Kamlabalan in the district from Madhiub Ganik, Samastipur and Khagaria Districts, Parman in Araria, Mahananda in Kishanganj and Purnia Districts flow in higher than normal flood situations.

The hydrological situation in the Yamuna basin has returned to normal, except in the tail regions. The main Yamuna in Praygraj district flows in severe downward flooding situation.

The Panchana (Karauli district) and Ranapratap Sagar (Chittorgarh district) dams of Rajasthan have high levels of storage, so discharges from these dams can be made according to the SOP by reporting to the downstream districts of the lower riparian states. the CWC informed the dam operators.

IMD has forecast very heavy rains in the Brahmaputra catchment, Barak and its tributaries and therefore Assam, West Bengal, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh and Meghalaya have been put on alert for the next two to three days.

In Assam, the Jia Bharali in the Sonitpur district flows in a severe flood situation, and the Beki in the Barpeta district, Gurang in the Kohrajhar district, Sankosh in the Dhubri district, the Brahmaputra river in Dibrugarh and the districts of Jorhat flow in a higher-than-normal flood situation, the CWC bulletin added.
