Flood scene improves further

The overall flood situation starts improving on Sunday following the halt of rains in the catchment areas of Arunachal Pradesh.

The water level of the Brahmaputra and its tributeries are gradually receding during the last 24 hours.

“The waterlevels of the mighty river are expected to recede further during the last 24 hours,” water resources development department officials told Assam Times on Sunday.

Surface communications that came into a grinding halt in Jorhat, Sivasagar, Dibrugarh, Lakhimpur and Dhemaji have been restored after flood waters damaging crops in several hectors in Lakhimpur and Dhemaji districts.
