Marginal let-up in flood situation

6 Sep 2015 - 8:39pm | AT News

Flood scene marginally improves on Sunday. But it might resume the worse turn if rains return in the catchment areas of Arunachal Pradesh. The water levels of the Brahmaputra stopped surging during the last 12 hours following a brief respite from the rains.

In Dibrugarh and Dhemaji towns flood waters have started receding marginally from Sunday morning. But it would take at least a week to help the towns get out of the blues. Major roads and buildings are still under surging waters. Same situation prevails in Tinsukia district where flood waters continue to wreak havoc following the incessant rains that lashed the entire state.

The scene is not different in Sonitpur, Goalpara, Kokrajhar, Chirang, Nagaon, Barpeta, Morigaon where lakhs of people are taking shelter in the relief camps set up by the government. A section of the refugees have been alleging inadequate relief materials in some areas. They accused the district administrations of not doing enough to help them get a respite from the plights.     

What is Global Warming?

18 Jun 2007 - 1:57pm | Rituparna Goswami Pande
The arctic ices are melting and so are the glaciers, the result global warming. Global warming is the increase in the average temperatures of the Earth's near-surface air and oceans in recent decades and its projected continuation. Global average air temperature near the Earth's surface rose alarmingly during the past century. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concludes, "most of the observed increase in globally averaged temperatures since the mid-20th century is very likely due to the observed increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gas concentrations," which leads to warming of the surface and lower atmosphere by increasing the greenhouse effect. Natural phenomena such as solar variation combined with volcanoes have probably had a small warming effect from pre-industrial times to 1950, with only a a small cooling effect since 1950. This warming phenomena and sea level rise are expected to continue for more than a millennium even if greenhouse gas levels are stabilized. This reflects the large heat capacity of the oceans. An increase in global temperatures can in turn cause other changes, including sea level rise,can result in floods and drought. There may also be changes in the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, where such changes will vary from region to region around the globe.
