The heavy downpour has also disrupted the rail traffic in the region. At least ten trains were cancelled today morning. Delays were reported on several routes.

A number of villages under Tardih block of the district have been badly affected by flood waters. Some of the worse hit villages are Alinagar, Kiratpur, Ghanshyampur, Goraboram, Manigachhi, Birail, and Kusheshwar Asthan.
