BONGAIGAON, June 25 - Rain water rushing down from neighbouring Bhutan has caused flash floods in several villages in Chirang district in the past 24 hours.

Rivers Aie, Kanamakra, Taklai, Nangolbhanga and Hoot-hooti and their tributaries swelled up and flooded villages near them. Houses and a few bridges were damaged, ponds and drinking water sources went under water due to the flood in these villages and livestock suffered casualties.

Massive deforestation and increased mining of sand and stones on the northern part of the district have added to severity of this flash flood in the Bhutan bordering areas, a section of villagers alleged.
