An orange alert has been issued for several regions of Bihar including Patna for October 3 and 4 by as heavy rainfall is expected in these areas.

The relentless rains and deluge that took place between September 27 and 30 have left parts of the state in a dire condition with the death toll touching 55.

Restoration works have been on in full-swing since Monday and government relief workers have been hard at work, trying to pump the water out of the submerged localities.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted heavy rainfall in Patna, Vaishali and Khagaria districts. The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) has rescued ten thousand people from the state capital.

Five teams were deployed in Patna’s Rajendra Nagar and Kankarbagh alone to assist people. The Indian Air Force has also been airdropping relief material to the flood-affected areas.
