Godavari river has risen by five feet, to 49 ft, since morning, at Bhadrachalam. This is first time that the river is in spate after the bifurcation of both Telugu states. Officials of both states have not yet taken any steps, except for putting up danger signal 2. There is a chance of the villages in the periphery of the river getting marooned. Already some villages have lost communications with the rest of the state. If the situation intensifies further, there is impending danger, it is learnt.
