The road to get there should be okay. The area directly at the Ganga is flooded.

HI Christopher F,

City is absolutely fine, flood at Varanasi means only the river banks and adjoining low lying areas are affected. The only thing you may not be able to do is boating in the river, other than this is everywhere else can be visited.
