According to information, some fresh areas have been inundated in lower Assam where the river Beki was playing havoc, forcing panic stricken villagers to abandon their houses. The Brahmaputra is still flowing above the danger mark at Dibrugarh, Naemati and Dhubri while its tributaries Jia Bhorali and Puthimari were also above the red mark.
