Second wave of flood hits State

By The Assam Tribune

LAKHIMPUR, May 16 � Assam�s flood-prone Lakhimpur and Dhemaji districts were today hit by the second flood of the season following heavy rainfall in the catchment areas, officials said.

The water level of Brahmaputra�s tributaries Ranganadi and Singora was rising alarmingly with fresh areas being inundated, affecting 30 villages under the Lakhimpur and Naoboicha revenue circles.

The North Eastern Electricity Power Corporation (NEEPCO) released 30 cusecs of water and opened its sluice gates at the Ranganadi Hydel Power Project following technical snag in a power grid yesterday, they said.

This also led to fresh flooding in the two districts, with the causeway of National Highway-52 near the Ranganadi Bridge being submerged and road communication disrupted. � PTI
