Assam flood situation eases
Guwahati: The flood situation in Assam has
eased today with the mighty Brahmaputra maintaining a falling
trend along its course in the 11 affected districts in the
valley, even as the Barak valley`s water level is rising
displacing over five lakh people.
Though it was flowing over the danger level at some
places, Brahmaputra with its tributaries was recording a
falling trend due to declining rain in the last few days,
official sources said.
The flood waters were ebbing from human habitation and
farm lands in the affected districts of Lakhimpur, Dhemaji,
Dibrugarh, Sibsagar, Jorhat, Golaghat, Morigaon, Sonitpur,
Dhubri, Goalpara and Barpeta, the sources said.
The Central Water Commission said the Brahmaputra was
flowing with a falling trend, though above the danger level,
at Dibrugarh town in Dibrugarh district, Numaligarh in
Golaghat district and Guwahati.
In Jorhat district the river was flowing steadily above
the danger level at Nimatighat, the river port to Asia`s
largest river island Majuli in the state, and at Dharamtul in
Morigaon district, the CWC said.
Tributaries Jiabhorali at N T Road Crossing in Sonitpur
district and Pagladia in Barpeta district flowing above the
danger mark were, however, rising.
