The situation is worse in Ballia where Ganga has risen to the height of 60.31 meters which is about three meters above the red mark.


River Yamuna to is flowing above the danger levels at Kalpi, Chillaghat (Banda), Hamirpur and Naini (Allahabad) areas while River Betwa river is flowing above the danger mark at Hamirpur.
