Second flood warning issued in Andhra Pradesh


With the inflows on the Prakasam Barrage rising step by step after a short downward pattern, a second flood warning was issued within the early hours of Sunday.

The second flood warning, which had been in power since October 14, was withdrawn solely on Saturday afternoon because the discharge on the barrage fell to lower than 5.69 lakh cusecs.

The discharge as of seven p.m. was 6.15 lakh cusecs. It was 5.70 lakh cusecs at 6.30 a.m. As of 6 p.m., the discharge on the Srisailam mission was 5.09 lakh cusecs. It was 5.23 lakh cusecs at Pulichintala.

The inflows and outflows on the barrage was greater than 6 lakh cusecs all through the day. An analogous scenario was prone to proceed for one more day, officers stated.

In the meantime, hundreds of flood victims proceed to remain both on the aid centres or at different protected locations as their homes positioned alongside the Krishna stay marooned. Minister for Transport Perni Venkataramaiah inspected the flood-hit islands of Edurumondi, Nagayalanka and Eelachetla Dibba close to the confluence of the Krishna and the ocean.
