Flash floods, triggered by continuous heavy rain in the past few days, have had a devastating impact in many areas under Golaghat district. The raging water of the Kakodonga river breached an embankment in the district on Saturday night.
Following the breach in the embankment, panic has gripped the area where there are about 10 villages with the villagers not knowing where to go. Some people were taking shelters at government schools.
Flood affected people have alleged that the district administration or Assam government have not yet provided any relief measures to them.
