Let-up in flood situation

The overall flood situation shows some let-up sign. But the majority of the affected locations are still under water.
The flood water receded in Chirang and Lakhimpur districts, while the situation in the worst-hit Dhemaji and Jorhat had also marginally improved.
Most of the villages in 12 affected districts were still under water.

The first wave of flood this season since mid-May has affected nearly 1.5 lakh people in about 500 villages across 12 districts in the state.
