One person was killed due to electrocution caused by flash floods triggered by a night-long downpour in Dibrugarh city on Sunday. All the main thoroughfares and most of the localities were flooded, disrupting daily life.
All education institutions in the city were rendered non-functional, while government offices were under flood water.
The power supply and telecommunication services across the district were disrupted across the city.
Floodwaters inundated Milannagar, Grahambazar, Khalihamari, KP Road, Padum Nagar, Amolapatty, Naliapool, Santipara, Chowkidinghee, Ganagapara, Bansbari, Gabharupathar and Seujpur areas.
The residents were caught unawares by the flash flood and had a harrowing time with water seeping into their homes. Major portions of the busy Mancotta road were under water. It is the town's lifeline and the downpour threw traffic out of gear.
The situation was the same in several other arteries like RKB Road, KC Gogoi Road and PN Road.
The SP office, DC office campus, police reserve, Gabharupathar police station remained submerged.
