Chatrang River causes devastating flood in Assam’s Gohpur

Guwahati: The situation in the number six ward of the Gohpur municipality in Assam’s Biswanath district deteriorated on Wednesday after the Chatrang River overflowed due to the state’s recent severe rainfall.

The river’s excess has caused floods in the surrounding ward. Even though the water has receded significantly, residents said their homes are still partially or fully underwater.

According to reports, up to ten families’ homes in the ward have been completely demolished.

As the water levels receded, residents whose homes had been submerged in the flood water returned to retrieve some items.

It should be mentioned that severe rains have caused floods in numerous regions of Assam and the Northeast in recent days.

According to the Assam state disaster management authority (ASDMA) reports, the death toll from the natural disaster has risen to six.

Meanwhile, the number of persons affected by the floods has risen to 4,03,352, according to the report.

The local administration has put up 178 relief camps for a total of 39,558 individuals.

Dima Hasao is one of the hardest impacted districts because it is blocked off from the rest of the state. Since May 15, road and railway connections to Haflong have been disrupted.

Furthermore, the Brahmaputra River is flowing above the danger level at Nimatighat in Jorhat district and Kopili river in Nagaon district’s Kampur region.
