Threat of flood

Heavy rains in Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh threaten to submerge many parts of Assam during the next 24 hours. 

The water levels of the river Brahmaputra and her tributeries have started going up following the non stopped rainfalls from Friday in both the neighbouring states. The mighty river is flowing just an inch below the danger mark. But if this trend continues atleast ten to fifteen districts are likely to come under the surging waters. The worst-hit would be Lakhimpur and Dhemaji where the situation would worsen as soon as Arunachal Pradesh releases the excess waters from the hydel dams.

According to the weathermen the situation would not improve for the next 48 hour.
