Weather India: Continuous rainfall has badly hit normal life in many parts of India, especially in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar during the last few days. Till now, over 150 people have lost their lives due to heavy downpour in both the states. However, Bihar seems to be worst hit with water swaying all over the state.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued an orange alert in Patna, Begusarai, Khagaria and Vaishali districts of Bihar for 3rd and 4th October (Today & Tomorrow). People have been asked to stay inside their homes to prevent any mishap.  The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) team has rescued more than ten thousand people from the state capital.
