 Flood waters are likely to wreak havoc in Lakhimpur and Dhemaji districts again if the rise in the water level of the Subansiri river is any indication.

There has been sudden and steep rise in the water level the river in Arunachal Pradesh for the last couple of hours on Friday posing serious threat to the two districts.
