The rising water level at the Chandil dam prompted the authorities of the state water resources department to open radial gates of the dam. ” Yesterday we opened four radial gates. Overnight rains compelled us to open another radial gate,” said an official of water resources department

 “Weather conditions will remain the same, by and large, and incessant rains in moderate to heavy form will continue for the next two days,” said the local met office. The monsoon is back to life, here for the last one week, in the wake of cyclonic circulation over Gangetic Bengal and Bangladesh, said a met official.

In the wake of incessant rains, for the last two days, flooding the low lying areas and water level experiencing a gradual increase in the two rivers the authorities have jumped into action.
