SAPTARI: Half dozen of villages in the southern belt of Saptari district are likely to be inundated with the rivers getting flooded after the incessant rainfall occurred for four days in the eastern hilly districts.
The southern plains itself is witnessing rainfall for some days.

The streams as Khando, Mahuli, Jita, Triyuga, Balan, Amaha, Sundari are flooded with the huge rainfall.
Although the embankments in both sides of these streams are essential to contain the flood, the works to this regard was halted for three months in the wake of COVID-19, the locals said.
