BIHAR FLOODS: DÉJÀ VU

Floods are continuing to wreak havoc in Bihar. The death toll in Bihar stands at 92 while 66.76 lakh people from 12 districts of the state have been hit by the calamity. Sitamarhi district is the worst hit.

The Gaon Connection team reached Madhubani district. There are 28 Gram Panchayats in the ditrict's Brisfi block. All are submerged in water. While people are suffering they said they haven't received any help from the government. They complained that the government hasn't provided them with any relief material and even the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) team is missing in action as of now.

On July 14, the dam on the Kamla river, flowing close to Madhubani-Jhanjharpur blocks, broke as a result of which many roads got washed away and water was flowing though many National Highways. Many villages are cut off from cities and main markets.

According to information provided by the state's Disaster Relief Management Department, 13,73000 in 18 blocks of Madhubani districts are affected by floods. There are four relief camps in the district, which has given shelter to 3,721 people. This means the rest are still struggling.
