 Gudivada, July 22 (prajaamaravati): State Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Minister Kodali Srivenkateswara Rao (Nani) has said that a control room has been set up at the Gudivada RDO office in Krishna District in view of the low pressure in the northwestern Bay of Bengal.  Revenue officials on Thursday reviewed the situation in nine mandals in Gudivada division in the wake of heavy rains caused by low pressure.  On the occasion, Minister Kodali Nani said that control rooms are also being set up in nine mandals in the division.  Measures have been taken to keep people vigilant in the hinterland.  He said there were situations where roads were inundated due to heavy rains.  Authorities have been instructed to take measures to prevent water stagnation on the roads.  It was pointed out that there are fish and fresh water ponds in various mandals under the division and the control rooms in the respective mandals should be informed immediately if the dykes or canals overflow.  We are taking steps to ensure that rainwater, especially in the hinterland, drains downstream as soon as it enters the house.  The suburban colonies wanted to see no flooding problem.  We are taking proper care of sanitation.  He said that if there was a flood problem in the colonies, a relief camp would be set up immediately and all arrangements would be made so that the people would not get in trouble.  He said that medical camps should be set up in the villages to prevent the spread of infections. He said the situation in the Gudivada division was under control.  Meanwhile, winds of 50 to 60 kilometers per hour are expected along the coast, causing rough seas.  Fishermen are not allowed to go hunting into the sea until Saturday.  Minister Kodali Nani urged the people, especially in the hinterland, to be vigilant and report any problem to the control rooms immediately.
