Huge discharge of water may cause Flood at midnight

With the heavy raining in both the Damodar and the Barakar catchment areas over the last 48 hours DVC has now been discharging water @70,000 Cusec (approx) combinedly from its Panchet and Maithon reservoirs from this morning which may reach Durgapur Dam tonight by 10.00 p.m causing a release of more than 1,00,000 Cusec from down Durgapur. Hence water level of both the rivers namely Damodar and Mundeswari will be double as of now.
The DVC release is likely to be increased since Tenughat reservoir will shortly discharge more water which will reach Panchet reservoir resulting further hike in rate of release from Panchet too.
