Water from the higher planes is flowing into Krishna River, causing heavy floods, and all the water is flowing into Prakasam Barrage. Officials have lifted all the 35 gates about a foot high. Most of the water is being released into the sea while some of it is being used for drinking water. This is first time that so much water has collected in Prakasam Barrage in the month of June itself, in the past 15 years.
