Almatti dam water released, may ease Maharashtra flood woes

The grim flood situation in south-west Maharashtra that left at least 37 people dead, is expected to ease with the Karnataka government releasing around 4,80,000 cusecs of water from Almatti dam on Friday, an official said here.

The Maharashtra government had made several pleas to the Centre and Karnataka for release of Almatti dam waters to help ease the flood situation in Sangli, Kolhapur, Satara and the surroundings that have been lashed by incessant rains since the past over one week.

Maharashtra had demanded release of at least 5,00,000 cusecs water from Karnataka to mitigate the flood situation in the state, where over 2.85 lakh people have been displaced and massive rescue efforts by multiple state and central agencies are underway.
