Even as the Odisha government on Monday initiated measures to avoid a major flood in Mahanadi river, there has been a considerable rise in the water level of the state's biggest river. This apart the water level in tributaries and distributaries of Mahanadi and other rivers are also reaching the danger level in the wake of week-long heavy rainfall across the state.

Although rainfall activities have reduced in lower catchment areas, the upper catchment areas of Hirakud are still experiencing rainfall, informed Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) PK Jena.

Three basins of 3 rivers - Indravati, Tel and Mahanadi recorded heavy rainfall under the influence of the depression over Bay of Bengal in the past 24 hours. Till Sunday, it was expected that there would be an inflow of around 7 lakh cusecs of water into Hirakud dam. However, it has now increased to 8.5 lakh cusecs.

Even as Govt has decided to close eight sluice gates of Hirakud, water from upper catchment areas is causing Mahandi to swell, said the SRC.
