Northeast India has been reeling under flooding conditions wherein at least 32 districts of Assam have been seeing floods. At least 55 lakh people have been affected across the state. Assam is divided into two parts wherein only the Assam Valley gets impacted due to the overflowing of Brahmaputra River but the Silchar part of Assam does not see such a situation. However, this time, both these areas have been affected by the floods.
There has been some relief as rains during the last three days have been on the lighter side. The reason being that now a Cyclonic Circulation has developed over Odisha and adjoining Bay of Bengal, and this has changed the wind pattern resulting in the reduction of rains over Northeast India.
This feature is expected to persist for two three days, marginally shifting westward. Conditions do not seem to be building for any extreme rains over Northeast India, as had been the case in the past.
Normal rains will continue as Northeast India after Monsoon arrival is never dry but they will not be on the heavier side. There has been some relief in the last three days and in the coming days also, flood situation will not worsen.
More rains will be seen over Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura in the coming days. Massive relief from floods is not expected as even after the rains cease, water bodies keep responding. Though the situation has been marginally better in terms of rains, but there has not been any significant relief.
