Flood situation remains grim in North Assam

The flood situation in Assam remained grim with fresh areas inundated by rising waters of river Brahmaputra and its tributaries while worst-hit Dhemaji and Lakhimpur districts remained cut-off as heavy rains lashed the catchment areas. The rising water of Brahmaputra and its tributaries had inundated vast tracts of land in several places of Dibrugarh, Sonitpur, Dhubri, Jorhat, Kamrup, Barpeta and Nalbari districts following heavy rainfall. Brahmaputra was flowing above the danger level at Dibrugarh, Nematighat in Jorhat and Dhubri while River Dhansiri at Numaligarh in Golaghat, Jia Bharali at Sonitpur, Pagladiya in Nalbari and Beki at Barpeta. Brahmaputra was flowing above the warning level and rising alarmingly at Tezpur, the Burdihing at Khowang in Dibrugarh, Subansiri at Badatighat in Lakhimpur, Dikhow and Desang at Sibsagar, Puthimari at Kamrup and Sankosh at Golokgunj in Dhubri.
