Let us tell you that every year many districts of Bihar are affected by floods and the lives of crores of people get disrupted. This problem has been there for years. This year too, as soon as the monsoon started, the rivers have started to take a terrible form. According to the Water Resources Department, the Gandak and Kosi rivers are flowing above the danger mark at some places in the state. The Gandak river is flowing above the danger mark at Dumriya Ghat in Gopalganj, while the Kosi river is above the red mark at Baltara in Khagaria.

At the same time, due to floods in Bakra and Parman rivers in Araria, water has entered many low lying areas. The water level of small rivers has also increased. At many places, the water of the rivers has started spreading in the Terai areas.
