TURA, Aug 22 - The flood situation in Garo Hills districts have begun to improve today with most districts reporting very low rainfall though the situation is still under close watch.

The whole region has been experiencing rains with Baghmara town getting the worst of the squalls. Most rivers of the region, barring the Simsang in Williamnagar were in spate and close to danger level prompting NDRF teams to be on standby.

�Water levels are receding. However, all officers have been asked to be on standby in the event of any eventuality. The NDRF teams are also on standby�, stated DC, North Garo Hills SC Sadhu.

The main bazaar in Baghmara was under flood waters this morning. The Simsang river in Baghmara and Rompa in Shibbari had either breached or gone dangerously close to breaching its banks yesterday and today. Paddyfields in and around Baghmara remained submerged.

In West Garo Hills, the administration said that the Selsella block was being monitored after an MHA advisory warning of water rise in neighbouring Dhubri. �If the situation worsens, we will look at moving people to designated shelter camps. We are taking the MHA warning very seriously and officials are on standby�, said DC West Garo Hills Pravin Bakshi.
