Fatafat: Heavy rains claim over 25 lives in Bihar

Updated 01 Oct 2019 07:22 AM

Heavy rains continued in Bihar for the third consecutive day on Sunday, killing at least 25 people across the state and crippling 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.

No respite is in sight with the Met Office predicting more rain in the next 24 hours and the state government has issued a "red alert".

The unexpected "heavy to extremely heavy rain" has so far claimed the lives of over 25 people - mostly drowned, across the state, officials of Disaster Management Department said here.

The water level in major rivers including Ganga, Koshi, Gandak, Bagmati, and the Mahananda, are on the rise, threatening to breach embankments at many places.
