Bihar flood situation getting worse

The torrential rains that have continued over the last few days have severely affected the entire region, especially, its capital, Patna. News report say that over 13 lives lost within 48 hours of heavy floods across the state. Residents in Patna are facing extreme situations, some needing to be rescued by cranes sent by Municipal authorities. Red alert has been issued by the Bihar State Disaster Management Authority as the water level has increased at an alarming rate.

The incessant rainfall has also led to collapse of buildings in three different locations in Bhagalpur district leading to around eight deaths, including that of a woman. Casualties have also been from Barari, Khanjarpur and Nathnagar in the district. In Danapur, on the outskirts of Patna, a tree fell on an auto-rickshaw crushing to death four of its occupants including a one and a half year-old girl.
