Woes of flood

The overall flood situation has gone from bad to worse following the incessant rains that cripple normal life in the state during the last one week.
More and more areas in ten districts have come under the surging waters of the river Brahmaputra and its tributaries during the last 24 hours.
Flood waters on Saturday inundated new areas in Barpeta, Lakhimpur, Dhemaji and Sonitpur districts.
Over one lakh people have been reeling under flood in Barpeta district damaging 2,800 hectares of crops.
The Brahmaputra is still flowing above the danger mark in Nimatighat in Jorhat and Dhubri where roads, embankments and bridges were washed away.
