Citing a report compiled till yesterday, the Relief Commissioner's office here said around three lakh people have taken shelter in relief camps in the affected districts of the eastern parts of the state.
"The death toll in the floods has reached 104 in the state, where 3,097 villages in 24 districts are inundated affecting a population of over 28 lakh," it said.
Army choppers, National Disaster Response Force (NRDF) and Provincial Armed Constabulary-Flood (PAC-Flood) personnel continued relief and rescue operations round the clock in the severely affected areas of the flood-hit districts of the state.
Release of water in the rivers emanating from Nepal and incessant rains impeded rescue work, they said.
A Central Water Commission report here said the Sharda river was flowing above the red mark at Palia Kalan and near the danger mark at Shardanagar while the Ghaghra river was flowing above the red mark at Turtipar in Ballia.
The Rapti river was also flowing well above the red mark at Rigauli and Birdghat in Gorakhpur, while the Quano river was flowing above danger mark at Chandradeep Ghat in Gonda, it said.
