August 1, 2013. It is reported that heavy monsoon rains in India have caused an increase in the water level in the river Ganges.
In the state of Uttar Pradesh recorded numerous floods.
The constant increase of the water level in the river has forced the residents of the city of Allahabad to collect their belongings and move to a safer place.
The river Ganges is poured every year during the rainy season (July — September), at which time the water near the cities of Varanasi and Allahabad may go up by 15-16 m Since the main tributaries of the Ganga — Yamuna and Cauchy — very low banks, the catastrophic floods — not uncommon for the locals.
