hints: Midnapore district-month of July – heavy rainfall – rivers overflowing-trees uprooted, many villages flooded- loss of human and animal life-rescue operations-steps taken by the government
A Devasting Flood Causes Havoc In Midnapore
Midnapore, September 24: A severe flood washed away wide areas of the Midnapore district in the month of July. From 10th September onwards there was continuous rainfall for days. Thus it caused several breaches in the embankments. All the rivers overflowed with water. Water had to be released from the reservoirs too. It resulted in further inundation of new areas on both sides of rivers. Thus trees were uprooted and many villages were flooded. More than a thousand people are reported to be dead while many are still missing. Even crops, poultry, and cattle have been severely damaged. Widespread relief work has already been started by the state Government.
