Patna: Overnight rain in Patna once again flooded many parts of the state capital on Monday as several localities experienced the usual water-logging forcing people to walk in ankle to knee-deep water to get from one place to another.

Two-wheelers stalled due to water in their exhaust pipes could be seen everywhere even as the rickshaw-pullers were having a field day charging double fare to haul those in need of a conveyance.

Meanwhile, the weather office in Patna predicts moderate to heavy rain in the state capital for the next four days.

Authorities are gearing up to deal with a possible flooding situation in the Ganges as water level in Patna, Fatuha, and Mokama was said to be flirting with the danger level. However, no threat was perceived from other major rivers in Bihar including Gandak, Burhi Gandak, Kosi, also known as the bane of Bihar; Baghmati, Kamla Balan, Sone, and Punpun as they all were flowing below the red mark.
