Flood water recedes in Kolhapur, NH-4 likely to open

Maharashtra   |   Glibs Quick   |   about 8 days ago

MUMBAI. Water has started receding in Maharashtra’s flood-hit Kolhapur district and the Mumbai-Bengaluru national highway, which has been closed due to water-logging for last six days, is likely to open on August 12, officials said.

Continuous discharge of water from Almatti dam in Karnataka brought down the water level of the Panchganga river in Kolhapur where it was flowing above the danger mark.

Kolhapur and Sangli districts have been battling unprecedented floods since the last eight days following heavy rains in Konkan and western parts of the state where 40 people have lost their lives in the deluge.
