A state Disaster Management Department release said in view of threats of flood following the rise in the water level of Ganga, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday conducted an aerial survey of Patna, Nalanda, Jehanabad and Gaya districts and was also scheduled to hold a review meeting with officials at Gaya.

Rains in the past few days have raised the water level of Ganga threatening inundation of areas close to the mighty river.

Ganga river was flowing above danger mark at Gandhi ghat and Hathidah in Patna district, Kahalgaon in Bhagalpur district, while Ghaghra river remained in spate at
Gangpur-Siswan area in Siwan district and Koshi's water level was above the red mark at Baltara in Khagaria district, the release said.
