Kalahandi: With the rise in water level at Indravati reservoir triggered by incessant rains in Kalahandi district, five sluice gates of Mangalpur barrage were opened on Wednesday.

Around 134 cusec water is being discharged from the reservoir every minute. With opening of the gates, Hati River is rapidly swelling which may inundate the number of villages situated on the river bank.

Power supply has also been affected due to the downpour. There is no report of flood in any major river till last reports came in.
