Flood fury unchanged

There seems to be no let up in the overall flood scene with rains refusing to halt on Sunday. More and more areas have come under the surging waters during the last 24 hours.
The Brahmaputra and its tributeries are still flowing above the danger level suggesting that it would take time for the water levels to recede.
The worst-hit districts include Barpeta, Lakhimpur, Dhemaji and Sonitpurwhere lakhs of people have been rendered homeless apart from damaging crops. 
While the Brahmaputra flowed above the danger mark in Nimatighat in Jorhat and Dhubri, its tributaries washed away roads, embankments and bridges in various districts.
