According to the Directorate of Water Resources, in the coming days, the flood will peak in the watershed with water level measuring 3.5 meters – 3.7 meters, exceeding the first-stage warning level whereas in-field flooding in the upstream area at the second and the third warning level and above the third warning level in the coastal areas.
