Relief materials rushed to Dibrugarh dist

By Staff Correspondent

DIBRUGARH, June 26 � As the Brahmaputra water continues to spill over to more villages in Rohmoria and Larua mouza of the district, the district administration has rushed relief materials and pressed boat services for rescue operations. However, an unidentified body was recovered near Bogibeel Chaulkhowa Doloni Gaon this afternoon.

The rising flood water has driven out about 65,000 people from their homes in the district and the toll is expected to rise as the water level in the Brahmaputra kept flowing above the danger level at Dholla, Pasighat, Dibrugarh and Neamatighat even today at around 3 pm.

The worst affected in the district is Larua mouza where 25 villages, having a population of about 35,000, have been affected. The flood water was about five feet high at Mainamiri Gaon yesterday but today the level has climbed up to about 8 feet, submerging even the chang ghars (raised houses) in the area. Relief camps have been set up in Madhupur, Bogibeel and Kalakhowa in Larua mouza and food materials like rice, dal, mustard oil, salt, besides fodder for the cattles were being distributed among the people.

In Rohmoria area, 13 relief camps have been set up for 12 revenue villages of the area.

Flood situation grim in Lakhimpur district

According to our North Lakhimpur Correspondent, the flood situation in the entire Lakhimpur district continued to be grim following overflowing of Brahmaputra River and its tributaries and breaching of embankments at various places.

The rising flood water of Brahmaputra damaged a portion of the embankment at Sisi-Tekeliphoota area on Dhemaji district causing wide scale inundation of human settlements and paddy fields in Dhakuwakhona sub-division of Lakhimpur district.

According to district administration sources, about 60 villages have been affected by severe flood at Dhakuwakhona since yesterday.
