With huge inflows from upstream projects and heavy rains in its catchment Godavari unusually reached third warning level on July 11 itself though such an occurrence normally takes place in August month.

The district administration was on highest alert and ready to meet any emergency situation even if the flood level in the river reaches 60 feet. As many as 24 NDRF personnel were available to respond promptly to emergency situations, he said.
