Re: India floods
Not so good. Responding to flooding political base in Bihar, the federal government of India has opened the Farakka Barrage, allowing unimpeded floodwater into Bangladesh. If the gates had remained closed Bengal and Calcutta might have flooded as well, which from the point of view of New Delhi, might not have been a bad thing either, since those are opposition dominated. But flooding in Bihar was a current point of pain for New Delhi, so the politically best thing to do was open Farakka, what the hell, Bangladeshis dont vote in Indian elections.
Increased water into Bangladesh is coming from both the Ganges and the Brahmaputra which unite there. The latter has flooded out all those rhinos and elephants in Assam in the news lately. And killed a buncha people.
No good outcomes here. Nor for Louisana. Spare a tear for the flooded people, because for sure, their overseers don't.
