Flood Situation in West Bengal

12 districts had been affected by floods and 20 blocks in five districts had become "very vulnerable".

The chief minister, Mamata Banerjee said: "Heavy rainfall in these districts in one day, high tide in the rivers and flow of excess rain water from Jharkhand and Odisha into Bengal have led to this situation."

CM further said that "The situation is beyond our control, and 48 hours of heavy rainfall has been predicted. I have been told that more water will be released from Jharkhand, adding salt to our wound."

The 20 blocks in five districts are Kandi, Burwan and Bharatpur in Murshidabad; Dainhat, Rampurhat, Suri and Labhpur in Birbhum; Purbasthali, Nadanghat, Katwa and Mukteswar in Burdwan; Arambagh, Goghat, Khanakul I & II, Chanditala and Parsura in Hooghly; and Amta, Udaynarayanpur and Bagnan in Howrah.
