Guwahati: Assam floods: Brahmaputra breaches danger mark in Guwahati

The water level of the Brahmaputra river reached 49.95 meters from the danger mark by 10 am on Monday.

The danger mark for Guwahati has been fixed at 49.68 meters.
The water level of the Brahmaputra river in Guwahati rose by 12 cm in a 12-hour interval between 6 pm on Sunday and 6 am on Monday.

The water level of the Brahmaputra River has crossed the danger mark for the first time since the 2020 floods. The last time the Brahmaputra crossed the high flow level of 51.46 was in 2004, according to the Central Water Commission. The high flow level (51.46) is the highest water level ever recorded in Guwahati and is well above the danger mark (49.68 meters).
However, CWC officials cannot predict whether the water level will rise further in the coming days if there is heavy rainfall in other parts of the state.
