Flood fury worsens again

After a brief let-up, the flood fury took worse turn following heavy downpour on Sunday.

The Brahmaputra and its tributaries are flowing above the danger level following the rains that lashed many parts of the state for the last couple of hours.

More and more areas have come under the surging waters rendering more than 7 lakh people homeless. 

Government sources told Assam Times over 30,000 people are affected in 121 villages in Dhemaji, Tinsukia, Dibrugarh, Goalpara, Morigaon and Lakhimpur.

The death toll in the first wave of flood in Assam continues to be three — one each in Bongaigaon, Lakhimpur and Baksa districts.
