Prayagraj (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Sept 16 (ANI): Low-lying areas near Triveni Sangam in Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh have been flooded due to rise in Ganga River and Yamuna River water level here.
Residents here are forced to wade through knee-deep water in order to reach from one place to another in the flood-affected region.

"Around 500 houses here have deluged in water and there's no electricity supply here since yesterday. The authorities have assured that they will soon provide us with boat services here in order to rescue people and shift things," said Ram Shankar, a resident of Ganganagar.
As many as 210 people were moved into relief camps near Ganganagar village in the district after water burst into a few villages as rivers continue to swell owing to heavy rainfall in the region.
"This area is flooded with water and the water is consistently rising. The floodwater has swamped over hundreds of buildings here. Authorities have not taken any steps in this direction so far. A relief camp has been set up in a far by school here," said Ajay Sandilya, another resident.
Incessant rains have led to a flood-like situation in the district with villages near the bank of Ganga river partially submerged in water. (ANI)
