     Guwahati: The flood situation continues to remain grim in Nalbari and Barpeta districts of Assam. Twenty-five villages at Mayanag and Bhuragaon in Morigaon district were flooded by incessant rain and land erosion created havoc in Chirang and Dhubri districts.

Road communication in most parts has remained paralyzed due to the heavy flood. Crops and many houses have also been damaged in the current wave of floods in these villages. People have taken shelter at four relief camps set up at Lokhoupur, Gandhibari and Kendubari. The civil hospital at Pathsala has been evacuated on account of rising water levels in the town.
