Assam flood situation eases

By The Assam Tribune

GUWAHATI, Sept 16 (PTI) - The flood situation in Upper and Lower Assam eased today with the Brahmaputra maintaining a falling trend along its course in the 11 affected districts, however, water level in the river's tributary in Barak Valley continued to rise, displacing over five lakh people.

Though Brahmaputra was flowing over the danger level at some places, it is recording a falling trend due to declining rainfall in the state in the last few days, officials said.

The flood waters are ebbing from human habitation and farm lands in the affected districts of Lakhimpur, Dhemaji, Dibrugarh, Sibsagar, Jorhat, Golaghat, Morigaon, Sonitpur, Dhubri, Goalpara and Barpeta, they said.

However, Brahmaputra is still flowing above the danger level at Dibrugarh, Numaligarh in Golaghat, Guwahati, Nimatighat in Jorhat, Dharamtul in Morigaon and Asia's largest human inhabited river island Majuli.
