Flood scene improves a lot

 Flood scene starts improving day by day. The water level of the Brahmaputra and its tributaries start receding following the halt of the rains.The Brahmaputra flowing below the danger level in Dibrugarh, Jorhat Guwahati and Dhubri suggesting more relief for over 10 lakh people.

In the worst-hit Dibrugarh and Dhemaji, water level is receding rapidly. But some low lying areas are still under waters. “It would take a few more days for Dhemaji town to completely get out of the blues. Only the vital roads are clear. Many by lanes in the town are still under waters,” said a local resident.

Same scene prevails in Dibrugarh. Only the town areas seem to have heaved a sigh of relief. The adjacent areas would take more time to be cleared of the waters.

“The by going flood waves have completely ravaged us. It has damaged our houses. Our poultry were washed away. Crops have been destroyed. We have nothing around us to survive,” said a local resident in the outskirt of Dibrugarh town.

District administration told Assam Times that the extent of damage has yet to be assessed. The scene is not different in Sonitpur Dhubri, Barpeta, Kokrajhar Chirang Sivasagar, Jorhat, Golaghat, Morigaon, Kaziranga and Nalbari.
