Dhemaji: Assam was hit by the first wave of flood on Saturday with Brahmaputra's tributary Jiadhol rising alarmingly in the flood-prone Dhemaji district, officials said.
Heavy rainfall for the last few days has led to the water level of Jiadhol river to rise alarmingly affecting more than 20 flood-prone villages of the district.
A section of National Highway-52 was also submerged at Samarjan with traffic stranded on the way. The district administration has sounded an alert and
efforts are being made to ensure traffic movement along NH 52.
