Floods in UP and Bihar:
The monsoon rains this year have caused havoc in the country with the northern mountain regions witnessing constant landslides which have already claimed the lives of many. Regions such as Kinnaur in Himachal Pradesh, and others including Uttrakhand have been the most affected.
While other than this, the monsoon rains in 2021 have even caused a flood-like situation in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. The regions including Varanasi and Prayagraj have been the most affected due to UP floods.

The constant rains and water from the mountains have caused a rise in the water level of Ganga. With this, the water level of the Ganga has gone beyond the mark of danger in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
