In order to prepare for potential flooding, Yogi gave warnings to the authorities in Gonda, Basti, Ambedkar Nagar, Sant Kabir Nagar, Gorakhpur, Azamgarh, Deoria, Mau, Ballia, and Ayodhya.

The District Magistrates, Senior Superintendents of Police (SSP), and Superintendents of Police (SP) in these districts have been given instructions to organise the safety, rescue, and relief of people in villages and cities in a methodical manner.

As a result of severe rain and flooding in some areas of Lucknow earlier on Friday, the city administration issued a warning to its citizens, asking them to stay inside until absolutely necessary.

Since there is a forecast for more rain through September 17, the required instructions were given for the safety and wellbeing of the citizens of Lucknow.

The city’s government has issued an alert warning inhabitants not to leave their homes until absolutely necessary, to be cautious of abandoned buildings, and to stay away from congested and congealed regions.

Additionally, residents are recommended to take care of their health by drinking only boiled water, using bleaching agents, and buying chlorine pills from the local health centre.

The warning also advised avoiding exposed electric wires and poles, open sewers, and waterlogging, and alerting the Municipal Corporation Control Room for any such issues.

For emergencies such as electrical outages, dial 1912. Call the Chief Medical Officer, Lucknow Control Room at 0522-2622080 in the event of any medical emergency. Additionally, a number for the integrated Control Command Center to report any additional issues was included in the advisory: 0522- 4523000.

Public and community health centres (PHCs) and government hospitals (GHCs) are encouraged to maintain a high state of vigilance. Additionally, be sure that your hospitals have plans in place for the management of trauma, snakebite, electric shock, and water-borne infections.

It was also suggested that officers and staff members assigned to emergency services report for duty. Arrangements for medications, patient transportation, etc., should also be made.

When deciding whether to declare a holiday from his or her office, the head of office or competent officer of private offices is encouraged to make the appropriate decision.

The warning was issued after a wall collapsed in Lucknow, India, killing nine people and injuring up to two more as a result of recent heavy rains in the region.
