Flood poses threat to Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary

The flood fury in Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary remains critical with almost 95 per cent of the sanctuary under flood waters. The water of the Brahmaputra, Kopili and Kolong had inundated vast tracts of the sanctuary leaving the animals in peril. The overall situation in Pobitora turned grim with more than ten thousand people affected in 45 villages. The main PWD road connecting Pobitora with NH 37 was submerged at Kamarpur and a section of the road had been washed away disrupting road communication.
