Community radio station under flood water

Floods ravage Assam once again. The Brahmaputra Community Radio Station (BCRS), run by Centre for North East Studies and Policy Research (C-NES) from Dibrugarh's Maijan Ghat along the mighty Brahmaputra is now under flood water. Broadcasting is halted temporarily for now and disruption of electricity supply.

The river along with several of its tributaries are overflowing embankments, breaching them at several places, flowing above the red mark in Dibrugarh and Nimatighat (Jorhat) in upper Assam.

Most of the Boat Clinic operated by C-NES are affected. However, the health camps are continuing in few districts including Kamrup, Nalbari and Bongaigaon assisting local administrations in flood relief work.
