Guwahati/Agartala: Four people drowned and another died in a landslide on Saturday, taking the death toll in the first wave of flood and rainfall-induced landslides in Assam to eight since Wednesday. At least 21 others have died in flash floods and landslides in Manipur and Tripura over more than a month.

Two national highways — 37 and 2 — which link Manipur to Assam and Myanmar respectively have caved in along the mountain areas, blocking heavy vehicle traffic for the past three days.

Meanwhile, fresh areas at Mayang Imphal, Uchiwa and other villages have been inundated by the flood waters. However, the situation in and around Imphal has improved.

According to the Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA), four persons lost their lives in flood and landslide related incidents during the last 24 hours.

Officials of the Assam State Disaster Management Authority said two people in Cachar district and one each in Hailakandi and Hojai districts lost their lives in the flood that has affected 4, 25,373 people across seven districts.

Heavy rainfall triggered landslide at Mahur, Harangajao and Maibang under Haflong revenue circle in Dima Hasao, where one person lost his life, the ASDMA said.

Due to landslide between the Bandarkhal and Damchara station, rail movement continued to remain suspended in the Lumding-Badarpur section, Northeast Frontier Railway Chief Public Relations Officer Pranav Jyoti Sharma said.

Fresh landslides in Dharmanagar area of Tripura have also cut off Tripura from the rest of the country. The railway and highway to the landlocked State pass through this area.

Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb visited the flood-affected Udaipur area and held meetings with officials for providing relief in flood-affected areas.

Some 200 workers of the National Disaster Response Force had been flown into the State two days ago for rescue operations in Unakoti, South Tripura and West Tripura districts, where more than one million people have been affected.

The flood situation has slightly improved in Tripura even as over 40,000 people continue to remain stranded in 189 relief camps across the state, the sources said.

The flood situation also improved in Mizoram today with the water level of river Tlawng and Langkaih receding, officials said.

Disaster Management and Rehabilitation department officials said though the water level of Tlawng and Langkaih river in Lunglei district has started receding, 500 families were displaced and a number of houses were still under the water.
