Assam flood situation remains grim

The overall flood situation in Assam continues to remain critical on Sunday as some more areas are reeling under the flood waters of the river Brahmaputra and its tributaries rendering as many as four lakh people homeless in seven districts. According to information, some fresh areas have been inundated in lower Assam where the river Beki was playing havoc, forcing panic stricken villagers to abandon their houses. The Brahmaputra is still flowing above the danger mark at Dibrugarh, Naemati and Dhubri while its tributaries Jia Bhorali and Puthimari were also above the red mark. The situation in the river island Majuli remains grim for the second day on Sunday as two portions of PWD road at Pahumara Garmur- Jengraimukh Haladhibari have been washed away. Similarly, there is no let-up in the situation in the worst hit Lakhimpur and Dhemaji districts.
