Due to heavy rains the water level in the Godavari has touched 18.5 feet at the temple town of Bhadrachalam on Sunday evening.
According to the Central Water Commission sources the level in the river is expected to rise steeply crossing the first warning level of 43 feet due to incessant rain in the upstream areas.
Meanwhile, a team of the Irrigation Department officials monitored the water level in the river. They viewed the possibility of the river crossing the first warning level on Monday. They reportedly chalked out the necessary arrangements to issue first flood warning if the level in the river touches 43 feet.
