Bareilly : As many as 157 villages in UP’s Lakhimpur Kheri district were inundated due to a rise in the water level of major rivers in the state including Sharda, Ghaghra, Mohana, Karnali, and Suheli rivers.

According to officials, 5.32 lakh cusec water was released in the Ghaghra river on Monday, nearly after four decades, which led to heavy floods in the Dhaurahra area of Kheri and its adjacent districts like Sitapur and Gonda among others. 39 years ago, 5.12 lakh cusec water was released into the river.

Over one lakh people have been affected and the district administration has formed multiple flood relief camps to rehabilitate those affected, said officials. Meanwhile, people have been advised to not venture into rivers and use private boats.

At the moment five tehsils in the district are affected by floods and Dhaurahra is most affected; however, we managed to shift people along with their household items and livestock on time. ” He added, ” We are distributing relief material through 38 flood outposts and using 47 boats to reach flood-affected areas.
