AGARTALA, Aug 18 - Nearly two months after the devastating flood that left three persons dead and over 50,000 homeless in Tripura, a seven-member Central team landed here on Friday to assess the damage caused by the flash flood, according to official sources.
The team headed by Joint Secretary of Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) Daniel Richard held a meeting with district administration of Unakoti, one of the worst affected districts, on Friday. Later, the team visited some spots where the trail of destruction is still visible.
The team was in Dhalai district to see the damage caused by the flood in June last. The team held a meeting with District Magistrate (DM), Dhalai Vikash Singh and other senior officials.
The Central team will visit some areas of Jirania and Mohanpur subdivision to assess the flood damages on Saturday.
In June, the State witnessed unprecedented flood due to incessant rainfall. At least three persons died of flood related incidents while over 50,000 people, mostly in Unakoti district were rendered homeless. Crops in thousands of acres were destroyed.
