GUWAHATI, Sept 22 � Incessant rainfall and landslides claimed two lives in Guwahati and brought public life to a grinding halt today. A 71-year-old woman died due to landslide in Hengerabari-Lichubagan area, whereas another person (around 35 years) died due to electrocution at Odalbakra. A woman and a child, injured in a landslide in Kharghuli area, have been admitted to the GMCH.

An SDRF team recovered the body of the Lichubagan landslide victim late in the evening, whereas the electrocution death occurred due to an inverter, said district administration sources.

As a result of continuous rainfall for the past two days, the city reeled under severe waterlogging and traffic jam since the morning hours today. Though steps were taken by the administration to assist the affected people, the unprecedented weather conditions multiplied the people�s misery throughout the day.

Heavy and continuous rainfall greeted Guwahati on Monday morning, inundating all the vulnerable stretches of the city and the arterial roads including the RG Baruah Road, GNB Road and the GS Road. Waterlogging that started on the roads from around mid-morning, seriously affected vehicular traffic in the entire city.

While the people of Anil Nagar, Nabin Nagar and Rajgarh areas woke up to another disastrous morning, some other areas of the city also witnessed massive waterlogging. Lokhra and Hatigaon areas were badly hit due to the artificial flood, with main roads and many localities in these areas submerged under water.����

Waterlogging also affected public life at Maligaon, Pandu, Lalmati, Pub Sarania, Ambari, Gandhibasti, Panbazar, Ganeshguri, Hengerabari, Fatasil, Birubari, Panjabari and many other parts of the city. Heavy downpour in Meghalaya is said to be one of the reasons for the severe inundation of Guwahati city. �

A landslide in Narengi area blocked a portion of 2 No. Kenduguri Road, whereas some other landslide incidents occurred at Kamakhya and Dhirenpara.

Meanwhile, the administration has also sounded alert in the landslide-prone areas of Guwahati, requesting the people to move to safer places.
