Good rains have been lashing many parts of Northeast India including Assam and Meghalaya from last few days. Though after taking a brief break, rains started occurring over the seven sister's state once again. Several areas witnessed light to moderate rains along with few heavy spells at one or two places in the last 24 hours as well.
