Vijayawada, 200 villages threatened by floods
Andhra Pradesh geared up for more floods as a swollen Krishna river on Monday inundated parts of Vijayawada city and threatened to swamp 200 villages in Krishna and Guntur districts, while the overall flood situation continued to be grim in the rest of the state.
The authorities are constantly monitoring the level at the Prakasam barrage across the Krishna river and they said if Monday night passed without much damage to the 200 villages downstream in the two districts the threat would be averted.
Officials are describing it as the worst floods in Krishna river in 100 years.
The focus of the flood threat has now shifted to the coastal areas.
