Flood situation worsens further in Lakhimpur, Dhemaji

The over all flood situation in Dehmaji and Lakhimpur districts has taken a grim turn again in the face of the the incessant rains that have been lashing the districts along with the catchment areas of the neighbouring Arunachal Pradesh. Lakhs of people in more than 1000 villages have been rendered homeless last evening when the river Jiadhal breached a portion of its embankment in Dhemaji district. Moreover, hours after it, the flood waters have washed away a railway bridge in Moridhol area wrecking havoc for more than 500 vilages. Caught in this situation, the people in the affected areas have left for safer places. On the other hand, some more areas in Lakhimpur district have again come under the surging waters, which have washed away a potion of the National Highway 52 disrupting all sorts of surface communication. According to information, the situation could a grim turn if the rains continue during the next 24 hours.
