Red alert has been issued; major hospitals are flooded
The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a red alert for the capital city, indicating "heavy to very heavy rainfall" in the area. The weather authority has predicted heavy rains in Patna till September 30.
Furthermore, many state-run hospitals, including the Nalanda Medical College and Hospital (NMCH), one of the largest in the city, are flooded, thereby bringing more trouble for patients and civilians.
To deal with the unfortunate situation, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday held a review meeting through video conferencing with the concerned officials. Meanwhile, the neighboring state of Uttar Pradesh remains flooded too.
