DIBRUGARH, Aug 21 - The Dibrugarh district administration today rushed relief materials and medical help to the flood-affected people in different parts of the district.

The affected people were provided rations like rice, dal, salt and drinking water. Medical teams were also rushed to the flood-prone locations with medicines as the areas have become very unhygienic.

Altogether 11,262 people have been affected in the district, Additional Deputy Commissioner LN Gogoi said.

The Chabua and Dibrugarh West revenue circles have been the worst hit in the current flood. At least 13 villages are under floodwaters in Chabua circle and more than 17 villages at Lezai Kalakhowa under the Dibrugarh West Revenue Circle have been inundated.

ADC Gogoi said that several hundred hectares of standing crops have been damaged in the flood.

Bordoibam, Lezai, Doh Kalkhowa, Sakoipathar, Sessa Kinar Maina Missing Gaon, Pani Miri Gaon, Dighalia, NC Grant, Mazgaon, Sessa Nagaon, Gordhuria, Patar Gaon, Madhupur, Deori Gaon, Singibeel, Itakhuli, Than Gaon and Singori are some villages in the Lezai Kalakhowa area which face the flood havoc almost every year. Some flood-hit villages in Chabua are Dadhia, Mahmora, Kuligaon, Raidang, Chakhalia, Sapoi, Tengabari, Miri Gaon, etc.

Though the flood subsided to some extent today, it entered the Oakland Tea Estate, inundating the houses of workers there. A school and a dispensary in the tea estate have also been submerged.

The district administration has set up at least four relief camps in different parts of the flood-affected areas.
