Heavy floods in UP, 570 villages under water
The regional Met department's predictions that UP will witness thundershowers proved to be a reality as several villages in UP were hit by floods after incessant downpour due to a low pressure over the eastern part of Uttar Pradesh. Most of the flood hit areas received close to 25 to 30 mm of rainfall in the last one day.
Maximum rainfall was received by Sant Kabeernagar (170 mm), Basti (190 mm), Gorakhpur (144.8 mm) and Lakhimpur Kheri (134 mm) in the last one day. PAC and NDRF teams have been pressed for action in the flood-hit areas, as there are predictions of river water entering new regions.
To add to the woes of the conditions here, continuous rainfall is likely in most parts of UP over the next two days, with extremely heavy rains in the eastern parts of the state.
