Guwahati, June 13: The swirling flood waters on Tuesday submerged homes and fields in many districts in Assam. Heavy rains disrupted normal life. According to Assam State Disaster Management department, water levels have been gradually increasing in the Brahmaputra and its tributaries in the state.
Water has entered several houses in those areas and the heavy water logging on the roads also caused severe traffic jams. Cars, buses, bikes and vehicles of every sort were found stranded in almost all the major roads.
The districts that continued to be affected by the floods are Anil Nagar, Tarun Nagar, VIP Road, Rajgarh, Bhetapara, Jorabat, R G Baruah Road area, GS Road and much more were waterlogged. Traffic movement was slow in many areas following heavy water logging on the roads.
In the previous week, Assam faced the similar problem as one person died after being swept away in the flood waters which has submerged homes and fields in seven Assam districts and affected the lives of nearly 1.77 lakh people in the state.
This was because of the Brahmaputra river overflowing in several districts, submerging houses and agricultural fields of around 12.5 lakh people and inundating Kaziranga National Park.
