Flood situation near Sharda River: Communities Brace for Potential Flooding

July 6, 2024: The Sharda River, now swollen due to the release of over 1.5 lakh cusecs of water from the Vanbasa Barrage, has placed communities along its banks in a state of high alert. The sudden rise in water levels has compelled residents to relocate their belongings and livestock to safer areas.

On Saturday afternoon, the Vanbasa Barrage discharged 92,000 cusecs of water into the Sharda River, significantly increasing its volume and heightening flood risks for adjacent areas.

Extensive channelization work is underway to mitigate potential flooding. Geo bags have been strategically installed along a 1500-meter stretch to protect vulnerable zones from erosion and possible inundation.

The situation is under continuous surveillance. Administrative officials are closely coordinating with the Upper Sharda Barrage to receive timely updates on further water releases, ensuring that proactive measures can be taken to safeguard the affected communities.

  1. For all the people affected by this flood, I hope they make it out safely and with minimal damages. Due to living in an area that rarely suffers from natural disasters, I cannot claim to fully understand what these people are going through, yet my heart goes out to all the deceased and their familes. I wish the best to the millions whose homes and livlihoods have suffered. Sending hope from across the globe!
