JORHAT: The continuous heavy rainfall on both the northern and the southern banks of the Brahmaputra during the last few days has caused the water levels in the tributaries of the river to rise rapidly and, as a result, an embankment was breached by floodwaters in Lakhimpur district on Thursday afternoon. 

The rising water levels have mainly affected some villages under the two circle offices of Naoboicha and Bihpuria in Lakhimpur district, thereby forcing the district administration to step up its renovation work, particularly on the embankment of the mighty river. Circle officer Naoboicha H Milik said, "The floodwaters breached the no 1 Borsola embankment at around 3.30 this afternoon and more then ten villages under Naoboicha mouza were submerged by the deluge." 

He added the embankment breach, which has affected more than 1,000 families in the area so far, was caused by the heavy rainfall in both the hills and the plains during the last few days. "The rising water level in the river Senga took a serious turn this afternoon, resulting in the breach of the embankment, and we are now visiting the flood-affected village and conducting a survey to distribute flood relief material among the affected villagers," he said. 

The Bihpuria circle officer, D Mili, said about four villages under Laluk mouza of this circle have got submerged by the floodwater so far. Although the water levels of tributaries like Pabha and Singra are also rising, no severe flood impact was reported till Thursday afternoon, according to Mili. 

"Since the water levels of the rivers are rising and a few areas in the district have been affected, I have directed all concerned officials to take required steps to safeguard the people from the effects of the floods," he said. 

Deputy commissioner (Lakhimpur) Anwarwiddin Choudhary said a huge quantity of flood relief material has been stored in the district for distribution among flood victims and all required measures to deal with the floods are in place. "Moreover, the water resource department officials are keeping a watch on all the embankments and repair work is on at the big and important ones like Matmora to prevent any further damage," he said, adding a group of workers are busy with the repairs, particularly in the breach-prone areas.
