Flood wave hits Majuli

The first wave of floods hit the state. The worst-hit is Majuli. The
water level of the river Brahmaputra has been surging following heavy
rainfall. The surging waters breached a dyke at the Kharjan area where
350 hectares of cultivable land have been submerged. Floodwaters have
submerged 200 hectares of cultivable land at Chilakola and another 150
hectares at Kamalabari here so far. Moreover, the Kamalabari ghat has
been shifted due to the floodwaters; the water is still rising.
