Dr Prashant Singh
Abstract: Rapti is the main river of Balrampur district. In 2017 flood in Rapti affected more than 300 villages of the district causing huge loss of life and property. This study is an attempt to analyse the inundated areas of Balrampur district in 2017 through maps prepared with the help of satellite images. In the anticipation of upcoming flood these maps can be used to demarcate possible vulnerable areas and help in channelizing human and material resources in the right direction in preparing pre-disaster management measures. And hence thereby ensuring optimum utilisation of resources.
