Flood fury critical in Morigaon

The flood situation in Nagaon and Morigaon turns critical on Tuesday. Over 150 villages have come under the surging waters of the Brahmaputra affecting around one lakh people.

The water submerged vast tracts of human habitation and farm land with standing crops at Bhuragaon and Mayong revenue circles of Morigaon.

Erosion has added to the woes. Erosion seems to have taken serious turn at the main dyke of Brahmaputra at Bhuragaon point. It threatens to submerge the revenue circle office, police station, Bhuragaon college and the main market there. /
