BISHNUPUR | July 18
Though the rainfall has ceased, the surface level of Loktak is still rising and this has caused more flooding to the villages near the banks of the lake. Ishok, Naorem, Kongkham Naorem, Oinam, Kha- Sanjenbam, Toubul, Khoijuman, Upokpi Khunou under Thanga, Moirang and Kumbi districts have been flooded.
This has damaged properties, fish farms, and many hectares of paddy fields. The rise of the water level is caused by inflow of water from Nambol, Imphal and Nambul rivers.
The reading of project canal mouth at Ningthoukhong is also rising continuously.
The reading recorded today at 3:30 pm was 769.57 meters above sea
