In the eastern parts of the country, an east-west Trough is extending from Haryana to Northeast India across Bihar. Therefore, moderate to heavy rains with one or two very heavy spells is expected to continue over Bihar until September 30. These heavy rains may intensify the flood situation over Bihar.
As had been forecast by Skymet, rains have increased over Bihar since last two to three days. Moderate to heavy spells have occurred over many parts of Bihar during the last 24 hours as well. While Gaya received 22 mm of rains, Patna received 18 mm and Bhagalpur recorded 12 mm of rain.
Already many parts of Bihar are reeling under flood-like situation. Due to these ongoing rains, water level in most of the rivers has risen considerably leading to widespread flooding.
