Updated 30 Sep 2019 08:49 AM

Battered by heavy rainfall for the third consecutive day, Bihar lost at least 18 lives on Sunday to mishaps caused by the downpour that inundated streets, water-logged railway tracks and marooned business establishments. Heavy downpour has crippled life, especially in the state capital where record rains caused heavy water-logging and did not spare the houses of the Deputy Chief Minister and two former Chief Ministers.

Patna is now facing a flood-like situation with water is all around. People have been forced to stay indoors as most of the roads were water-logged. Moreover, there is no respite is in sight with the Met Office predicting more rain for today and the state government has issued a "red alert".
 


The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) is, meanwhile, closely monitoring the situation of states like Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand, where normal life has been affected due to incessant rainfall for the past two days.
