The Ganga is flowing over the danger level in Bihar and is likely to flood large parts of capital Patna by Wednesday afternoon.
People have begun evacuating low-lying areas following warnings of floods.
Patna District Magistrate Deepak Prasad, however, said the situation is under control.
He said a team of district administration officials along with officials of the irrigation and flood control department have taken stock of the situation. "We have taken all precautionary measures," he said.
