Assam is on high flood alert as Bhutan releases water from its reservoir

Assam Flood

Around 500 families have been evacuated from villages along the Bhutan foothills in Assam as the state went into high alert on Friday with the release of water from Bhutan’s Kurichhu dam.

The families were evacuated from villages in Assam’s Baksa and Chirang districts as a precautionary measure. The Assam government on Thursday night had directed district administration to be alert after the Bhutan government communicated that there would be a release of water from the dam.
