Flood situation eases in State

Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: There was respite in heavy rains over the State on Monday as the low pressure area in the Bay of Bengal moved over to interior Orissa after turning into a well-marked system. Rivers and streams, which were in spate on Sunday, were on a falling trend.

Water levels in the rivers Nagavali and Vamsadhara in Srikakulam district began to recede while the Kinnerasani and Taliperu in Khammam already fell far below their first warning levels. Penugutiwada in Kottur mandal of Srikakulam district, however, remained a cause of concern to the Disaster Management officials who are monitoring the situation, as it was found cut off, with water from the Nagavali river overflowing an embankment and flooding it.

The Godavari rose slightly at Dowleswaram anicut, forcing authorities to release 4.5 lakh cusecs of water into the Bay of Bengal.

The turbulence of the Krishna at Vijayawada too subsided following release of most of the flood water that joined the river from intermediary sources like Munneru, into the sea from Prakasam Barrage.

The inflows reaching Srisailam and Nagarjunasagar continued to be meagre at 5,000 cusecs and 1,000 cusecs respectively as the catchment areas of the Krishna in Maharashtra and Karnataka received only light rains.

Chief Minister K. Rosaiah who reviewed the situation with officials from New Delhi, asked Collectors to be on constant vigil and undertake relief operations wherever required.

Meanwhile, the State came under the influence of a trough in the upper atmosphere, extending from North Orissa to South Tamil Nadu and across the Coastal Andhra. The south-west monsoon remained "vigorous" but the rainfall over Coastal Andhra and Telangana was only moderate.

The maximum rainfall recorded in the State on Monday was merely 3 cm and this was at Adilabad, Chennur and Kaleswaram.
