Floods in Guwahati: Flooding in many areas of Guwahati after moderate rain | Guwahati News


GUWAHATI: Moderate rain lashed Guwahati on Thursday, resulting in heavy waterlogging on major roads and low-lying residential areas disrupting traffic for long hours.
According to the Regional Meteorological Centre here, the city received 4 mm of rainfall, which falls under light category, between 8.30am on Wednesday to 8am on Thursday. The city also witnessed accumulated 22.5 mm rainfall which falls under moderate category between 8.30 am and 5.30 pm on Thursday which led to extensive water-logging in parts of Guwahati.. Water hasn’t receded even after six hours which has become a regular feature following a downpour in the state capital.
Commuters, motorists and pedestrians faced severe problems as Rukminigaon–G S Road connectors, Keraikuch, Hatigaon and several other areas have been submerged in knee to waist-deep water.
Atleast 3-4 feet of water accumulated at several city roads including the Hatigaon-Bhetapara road. Several citizens took to social media to share their experiences and posted videos and photos of waterlogging and traffic jams.
“As usual the local authorities have no solution to the water logging problem. Roads are inundated every monsoon. The multiple agencies in the state capital city have no solution to deal with waterlogging,” said Mamun Haque of Hatigaon.
“This is minimal rainfall that has been welcomed by people in Guwahati. But because of the largescale waterlogging problem, public sentiment has changed. We have to understand the difference between waterlogging and flooding,” said another Hatigaon resident who has to walk in knee-deep water when there is rain in the city.
