Seven gates of Prakasam Barrage in Krishna district have been opened to release flood waters coming in from Krishna river. The Krishna District Collector has warned the people living in low-lying areas to be alert. Though there are no heavy rains in Guntur or Vijayawada, Krishna river is flooding due to very heavy rains in the upper reaches of the river. Water is overflowing from even the closed gates of the barrage, giving a gloomy picture of the floods.
