Flood havoc revisits

Parts of the upper Assam districts have come under flood after the waterlevels of the Brahmaputra and its tributeries rose following the incessant rains that lashed the catchment areas during the last couple of days.               Some vital roads in Sivasagar, Jorhat and Dibrugarh districts have come under the surging waters damaging crops in the paddy fields.      The situation could turn grave as the water levels of these rivers have been rising alarmingly.
