Major Flood Threat in Dhemaji, Lakhimpur


Dhemaji, Lakhimpur, and Majuli face a major flood threat as the Subansiri is swelling with every increasing day with water overflowing the under construction Lower Subansiri Hydroelectric Power Project (LSHPP) in Arunachal Pradesh.

Locals fear that the flood situation in the districts may worsen any moment.

Some even fear that if the dam breaks away, then lakhs of people will be left stranded and properties worth Rs crores will be destroyed.

It may be mentioned here that flood in Assam has already gripped 25 districts, affecting over 14 lakh people.

10 persons have reportedly died in the flood so far.
