Jorhat: The flood situation in Assam remains grim, affecting thousands of people residing in the area.
The River Brahmaputra is flowing above the danger mark in Jorhat, putting immense pressure on embankments in the district.
Several tributaries of the Brahmaputra, including the Bhogdoi and Dhansiri have inundated over 100 villages in Jorhat and Golaghat districts, which are the worst hit in terms of crop and livestock damage.
The Assam Disaster Management Authority (ADMA) has confirmed that 90 roads, embankments, culverts and bridges in the state have been damaged by the flood waters. Officials said that nearly 50,000 people have been affected in Jorhat district alone.
The government has set up relief camps and shelters for the flood affected people. The district administration is providing food and other facilities to those rescued from flood affected areas.
Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has reviewed the flood situation and instructed the state health department to monitor hygiene related issues. Sonowal stressed on providing proper relief materials to women and infants.
Heavy rains in Assam during past few weeks have created a flood like situation in the state, disrupting the lives of the residents.
