Flood waters show receding trend

There is some let-up in the flood fury. But the misery refuses to recede. Flood waters seem to have started stopped spreading to new areas in Lakhimpur and Dhemaji district. The water levels of the Brahmaputra and its tributaries are showing a   receding trend following the halt in the incessant rains during the last 12 hours.

But the mighty river is still flowing above the danger mark in Dhubri and Goalpara. Other rivers like Puthimari and Beki are also showing signs of rising. Many districts in Lower Assam are reeling from the latest deluge. The worst-affected district is Barpeta.

According to Central Water Commission (CWC), the waters of the Brahmaputra, would be further receding on Tuesday night. /
