India:

Mysterious flood in river cuts off 13 villages

MANALI: Besides the eight Israeli nationals who are stranded in Pin valley of Lahaul-Spiti district of Himachal since June 5, the rising level of water in Kiri river has also put 2,500 residents of thirteen villages in trouble.

Stranded in their own treacherous valley, villagers had been seeking help for over a week as their ration and other commodities have almost depleted. Power supply and telephone connectivity to the valley has snapped and some confused and helpless villagers have already made failed attempts to cross the flooded stream, putting their lives in danger.

About 2 km stretch of the connecting road has disappeared and all retaining walls across the stream have completely collapsed. Residents of Mud, Guling, Sagnam, Khar and other affected villages are requesting government to drop ration, LPG, kerosene and other facilities by air.

"We have ration stock for some more days, but most of people have finished their available LPG and kerosene oil," said Tenzin Gyatso, a resident of Mud village, over phone. Residents are surprised to see non-stop flow of water and debris which they claim had never been witnessed for decades. "It is surprising how black water mixed with black debris had been oozing out of mountains without rain for last 11 days. It is impossible for glaciers to melt so fast," he added.

150 people who were working close to the stream, which was already in spate, had a narrow escape on Thursday when water level increased suddenly and washed away huge chunks of land. The flooded stream witnessed a sudden rise in level again on Friday. As the government failed to airlift tourists, a team of local administration, police and rescue volunteers who visited the spot could not find the exact source of flood water. Now the administration has planned to drop ration and medicines to villages on Saturday.

"The stream is again in flood and it looks impossible to cross it until the water level reduces and debris becomes hard enough to walk upon. We have planned to drop ration at affected areas on Saturday," said Kaza sub-divisional magistrate Hemis Negi.

Lahaul-Spiti MLA Ram Lal Markandeya said he has asked general administration department to arrange for a helicopter to airlift the stranded tourists. "We need to carry out a recce of the place and I've demanded a team of geological experts to check what is the reason behind unstoppable flow of water from the mountain top," he said.

While other stranded tourists managed to walk over the jammed debris few days ago, 8 tourists who are staying at a guest house in Guling village are still waiting for relief from the other side. After flood washed away the temporary rescue ropeway erected over the stream, administration and police have been helplessly gazing at the other side of the stream.

Meanwhile, after Himachal government failed to airlift the stranded tourists, agencies in Israel have been contacting people in Spiti seeking help to obtain permit to land their own helicopter. "A health insurance company from Israel is planning to fly to Spiti with their helicopters. They are seeking my help in this regard and I have conveyed their message to the administration," said Tenzin Gyatso, a resident of Mud village.

Flood scene grim in Barpeta dist

BARPETA, June 16 – Flood has taken a serious turn in Barpeta district and more than one lakh people have been affected. Tributaries of the Brahmaputra such as Pahumara, Palla, Kaldia, Burhadiya and Tihu have breached embankments and ring bunds at several places and caused devastation in the district for the third consecutive day today. Road communication in most of the areas of the district has been completely disrupted as most roads have been either submerged or washed away by the floodwaters.

The Kaldiya has breached a ring bund at Bhaktardaba and has submerged more than 25 villages in the western part of Paka Mouza in the district. The Tihu and Burhadiya have eroded embankments at several places between Kalatali and Era Kacharipara and have caused havoc in the eastern part of Barpeta subdivision.

Thousands of people have to be evacuated and rescued due to the rising trend of the rivers. The Pahumara broke its embankment near Kenduguri while Palla also breached its embankment at several places, creating havoc in the northern part of the district. However, the Brahmaputra and the Beki have not eroded or breached embankments at any place till the filing of this report. But the Beki embankment at Narayanguri and the Brahmaputra embankment at Fulbari have become vulnerable due to heavy erosion which need instant attention on the part of the authorities concerned.

The Sarthebari circle in the district is the worst affected with Paka Mouza under the circle facing extreme flood fury. Almost 100 villages under this circle have been submerged by the floodwaters and reports of inundation of new areas are pouring in. Almost 50 villages under the Barpeta circle are under floodwater while almost an equal number are reeling under the deluge in Baghbar and Sarupeta circles. The total number of the population affected in all the circles will cross one lakh with total households of more than 20,000.

More than 1,000 hectares of cropland have been damaged. If the cropland affected is taken into

account, the damage would stand at more than Rs 10 crore. Fish farnimg in the district has suffered a major setback with more than 50 per cent of the fisheries being washed away. Road communication between Howli and Barpeta and Bhabanipur and Barpeta has been disrupted since this morning as both these roads have been submerged by floodwaters.

The district administration is keeping a vigil on the situation and making full-scale preparations to meet any eventualities in the days to come.

Flash flood in Himachal: 2,000 residents, Israeli tourists stranded

SHIMLA: Flash flood triggered by melting glaciers in China bordering tribal Lahaul-Spiti district has cut off the entire Pin Valley from rest of the state as one km of road along with bridge has been washed off, said government Official.
 
The trouble spot in the cold mesmerizing Himalayan desert near the China border is about 408 Km far from the Shimla, the capital of Himachal Pradesh.
 
Eight Israeli tourists are also stranded in the Pin valley, he added.
 
“Population of 2003 people of Sagnam and Kunghi Panchayats has been deprived of the road connectivity as flash flood in the Kiri brook has washed off the entire 1 km of road along with the bridge yesterday and the flood water is still rising. Melting glaciers uphill are the reason for the flash flood as a lake measuring about 300mts has been formed upstream ,” said Himesh Negi, Sub-Division Magistrate (SDM) Spiti.
 
The local MLA Ram Lal Markandey and the district administrative officers who had gone to inspect the flash flood today, had a narrow escape when the huge flooding suddenly re-occurred.
 
“Melting glaciers upstream has created a lake which is causing the continuous flooding and it could script many other flash floods too,” said Ram Lal Markanday from the flesh flood spot by phone.
 
The local administration has surveyed the alternative route and the work will begin on war foot from tomorrow, the SDM Spiti said.
 
The cold desert of Lahaul and Spiti is a popular tourist destination especially among foreigners during June to October months when it remains open to the outer world.
 
Climate change has ruined the ecology of this snow sensitive Himalayan region.
 
Flash floods triggered by the melting glacier have spelt many natural disasters in this Himalayas in recent past causing huge damages to both man and his way of living.
For the local tribal people who had sustainable mode of development, this new phenomenon is spelling disaster, threatening their ecology, culture and existence.

Odisha: Coastal embankment gives way to tidal waves

Kendrapara: Battered by mighty sea waves, a four-decade-old coastal embankment near seaside Pentha village has caved in, exposing large chunks in Odisha’s Rajnagar block headquarters to tidal ingress.

"Sea waves smashed portions of the old embankment at Pentha and about 500 metre embankment wall has broken up. However, another protective embankment put in place about 50 metres from the erosion-hit embankment is safe," Executive Engineer, Saline Embankment Division, Kendrapara, Jugal Kishore Tripathy said.

"There is wide gap between the damaged old embankment and the 700 metre long new embankment. The advancing seawater has formed an artificial lagoon between the two. But the new one is protected. There is no immediate cause for alarm," he said.

Engineers are at the spot monitoring the work to save the portions of embankment that is still intact with temporary measures like stocking sand-bag and installing bamboo poles at the old embankment are underway, the official said.

As many as six villages near Pentha were eaten up by sea in cataclysmic 1971 cyclonic waves when the 1,200 population from Jaudia, Gohipur, Ichapur, Baunsagada, Goladiha and Sasana were washed away.

The villages like Pentha, Endulasahi, Prasanapur, Sundaripala and Khandamara under Brahmanasahi gram panchayat had escaped the 1971 cyclonic devastation. But the safety of these villagers is now at stake as intensity of sea erosion is alarming and frightening, another official said.

The World Bank-funded geo-tube buffer to arrest sea erosion has failed to kick-start in these areas.

Heavy rains flood Malabon areas

MANILA, Philippines–Heavy rains since Sunday night flooded areas in Malabon City, prompting schools to suspend classes and the city government to order an evacuation of residents.

Bong Padua, chief public information officer, told the INQUIRER that 19 families living on the riverbanks in Barangay (village) Tinajeros had to be relocated to the barangay hall for their own safety.

According to Padua, floods in the area reached “chest-deep” after water gushed through damaged parts of a dike near the Tullahan River early Monday morning.

The dike serves as a catch basin for water coming from Quezon City, Valenzuela and Bulacan province, among others.

Parts of it were destroyed by the heavy rains overnight and the high tide, Padua said.

In Barangay Potrero, eight families had to be relocated to Malabon Elementary School after floodwaters reached from 14 to as high as 30 inches.

Padua said the evacuees were expected to stay the night in the centers until water levels went down, hopefully within the day.

The City Social Welfare Development Office would shoulder the evacuees’ food, he said.

As of 7:45 a.m., floodwaters on F. Nicolas and C. Santos streets in Niugan village reached up to a foot deep. In several areas in the villages of Catmon and Longos, water levels reached 12 to 28 inches deep.

In front of the Rufina Patis factory on C. Arellano St. for example, the INQUIRER saw that several motorcycle riders had to wait on the sidewalk for the floodwaters to go down.

A rider, who identified himself as “Andy,” said he did not want to risk damaging his vehicle by running it through floodwaters that high.

Although the street was accessible by 11 a.m. to bigger vehicles buses and cars, the floodwaters still caused heavy traffic in the area.

The INQUIRER also spotted a roving 6-by-6 truck, which had a sign that read “Libreng Sakay” and NPD (Northern Police District) but as of 11 a.m., the truck was empty.

Padua said the trucks were filled with stranded commuters at around 7 a.m.

In several areas in the villages of Tanong, Santulan, Baritan and Concepcion, water levels ranged from 8 to 30 inches, according to a report by the City Disaster Risk Reduction Office submitted to Acting Mayor Antolin Oreta III.

Meanwhile, to prevent anymore water from the dike from spilling over into the residential areas, members of the City Engineering Office have been deployed to temporarily “sandbag” the structure’s destroyed parts.

Classes were also suspended for the whole day in 42 private elementary schools, 28 public elementary schools and nine public high schools in the city, according to Padua.

The City of Malabon University in Barangay Longos and the City of Malabon Polytechnic Institute in Concepcion village also announced a suspension of classes for the entire day.

6 barangays in Obando, Bulacan flooded

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATE) - Residents of Obando, Bulacan are bracing for more floods Monday afternoon as rains persist over Metro Manila.

This is because a dike blocking water from Manila Bay was destroyed.

Heavy rains brought knee-deep floods to 6 barangays in Obando namely Panghulo, Catanghalan, Pag-asa, Paliwas, Hulo and Tawiran Monday morning.

The water level is expected to rise around 1 p.m. when the sea level is at its peak.

Obando Municipal Administrator Alfredo Contreras said they are expecting nearly 4 feet of tide water, based on the PAGASA forecast.

Obando Mayor Orencio San Gabriel, meanwhile, said he declared as early as 3 a.m. the suspension of classes from pre-school to high school in the town.

Classes at the Bulacan Polytechnic College were also suspended.

San Gabriel said damages sustained by the town’s dike, which includes the destruction from typhoon “Pedring” in 2011, contributed to today’s flooding.

He said the dike was needed to fend off waters from the Manila Bay. He also noted that the town of Obando is lower than sea level.

"7.5 kilometers broken dike that prevents sea water of Manila Bay. That po is done but now is broken again because of the strong water"

San Gabriel said President Aquino has already allotted P49 million for the building of a new dike.

He said no evacuation for residents has been made so far.
