As the Ayawaddy River has swollen again for the second time, locals living at the river banks and  villagers of Saelan which is in the middle of the river in NyaungU Township of Mandalay Region were evacuated to higher ground shelters and were aided with relief items.
The river water level measured this afternoon was 79 centimeter above danger level of 2120 centimeter. The water has reached Nyaung-U (Myoma) Basic Education High School (Branch) but  as it is still not alarming, the school remains open, says an education official.
But the local people are facing inconvenience while going about the town. The water has also reached to the road going to Old Bagan and low lands, though the town locals say that this second tide was not as fast as the first tide. According to the Meteorology and Hydrology Department, the water is to recede under one foot of the danger level in the next two days.
