Rivers flowing disturbingly

The Brahmaputra was flowing above the danger level at Nematighat in Jorhat district, Burhidehing in Dibrugarh district, Desang in Sibsagar and Jia Bharali in Sonitpur. In Majuli alone, at least Rs 195 crore have been spent for flood control in the last four years. Agriculture was also affected as about 6,000 hectares were flooded with standing crops like rice being ruined.
