Basistha areas flooded

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 30 - Even as water in the Brahmaputra along the city continued to recede, rainfall in Meghalaya caused the Basistha River to swell, which led to water-logging in some nearby areas for a few hours today.

Officials from the Kamrup Metro district administration said water levels in the Basistha River went up this morning, resulting in water-logging around the Basistha Army Hospital and nearby areas.

�However, the water subsided by afternoon. The water level in the river went up on account of rains in Meghalaya hills which generally come their way downhill and reach the city,� said an official.

Meanwhile, water levels are receding in the Brahmaputra, but the administration is maintaining its alert for low-lying localities.
