Flood situation in West Bengal continues to be grim, particularly in the northern part of

Embankments of many rivers have breached particularly in districts like Malda, Murshidabad and Jalpaigudi. Some areas in North and South Dinajpur districts also affected. Water from Teesta barrage is being released regularly which is causing floods in low-lying areas. Over 3 lakh people have been marooned, with about two lakh shifted to safer places
