All 56 sluice gates of Saptakoshi opened

Dharan (Sunsari), July 7 : The water level in the Saptakoshi River has continued to rise with incessant rainfall for the past few days, prompting the local administration to open all 56 sluice gates of the Koshi barrage.    

 According to Chief District Officer of Sunsari, Ramchandra Tiwari, the flow of water in the river has been measured at 368,000 cusecs per hour at the Koshi Barrage. The monitoring of the flow of water from the official level has been continued. Red lights are on to indicate the highest danger level from the river.    

According to the Saptakoshi Water Measurement Center, the flow of water in the river has exceeded the warning levels. The swollen river is likely to gush into some areas in Udayapur and Sunsari. CDO Tiwari has requested the residents living near the Saptakoshi river banks to stay alert and safe. (RSS)
