The flood situation across Imphal Valley in Manipur continued to remain grim with heavy showers leading to water logging in Imphal East and Thoubal districts.


Repairing of the damaged banks of Imphal and Kongba rivers is underway. Overflowing waters of the Nambul river have inundated many roads in throwing vehicular traffic out of gear.

Assam Rifles personnel have been deployed for relief and rescue operations after the government sought their assistance. Hundreds of affected people have taken shelter in the relief camps.

In Assam, heavy rains have increased water level in rivers flooding many areas. More than 3.5 lakh people have been affected by floodwaters in 13 districts including Lakhimpur, Jorhat, Golaghat, Cachar, Dhemaji, Biswanath, Karimganj.

Incessant rains triggered major floods and landslides in a matter of days, causing havoc in and around the Itanagar Capital Complex. The National Highway 415 road between Itanagar and Naharlagun is blocked as a large portion of the highway near Dree Ground was washed away.

Traffic has been diverted to Papu-Nallah and Itanagar via Jollang road till the restoration is completed. More than 50 marooned families have been reportedly evacuated from Chandranagar area as Senki River is flowing above the danger level and affecting many houses located on the bank of the river. However, no human casualty is reported so far.

Normal life has been severely affected by torrential rains in Gujarat's Tonkara taluka of Morbi district which received very heavy showers increasing water levels in many check dams.

Rains that have been lashing the state since the onset of the monsoon have caused the water level in many dams to swell. State Disaster Management Authority has been placed on alert to deal with any emergency.

Met department has predicted heavy to very heavy rains in some parts of the state in the next two days, while light to moderate showers are likely to continue for the next five days in many parts.
