Flood creates havoc in Bihar

VV-PACS Community Correspondent Sheela Shekh from Munger district reports on the grim flood situation. Several villages, including Bajrang Bali Nagar, were submerged as river water rose above the danger levels in September 2013. The flood water entered all the houses of the village leaving 600-700 residents homeless.

Floods victims like Arun Mandal say there have been no steps taken by the district administration in terms of relief material or shelter camps to help the stranded villagers of Bajrangbali Nagar.

The devastation has also severely affected the education system as many colleges and schools remain close for an uncertain period.

Bihar is one of the most flood prone states in India. Floods in Bihar are a recurring disaster, which on an annual basis destroy thousands of human lives along with livestock and assets worth millions. Knowing this fact, the administration should have readied all arrangements to meet the challenge.
