Normal life in Guwahati remains paralyzed on Tuesday after heavy downpour brought brimful misery in the form of massive waterlogging for thousands of denizens in the premier north eastern city.
Incessant rains which lashed Guwahati from Monday night ended in the morning after many vital areas were caught in the rainwaters. Over 60% of the city has come under the rainwaters forcing the closure of many shops and markets, schools and colleges on Tuesday.
The worst hit areas include Ambari, Silpukhuri, Chandmari, Christianbasti, Anil Nagar, Nabin Nagar, Lachit Nagar where more and more areas have come under the rain waters which refuse to recede because of a swollen Bharalu river.
SDRF jawans are remaining well prepared for rescue operation while senior district administrative officers have been monitoring the situation.
A massive traffic snarl has added the woes on the busy GS Road, RB Baruah Road, where hundreds of vehicles have been remaining stranded for several hours.
