Inclement weather: At least three people were killed in a landslide in Assam’s Dima Hasao district. This information was given in an official bulletin. According to a bulletin issued by the Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA) on Saturday night, three people, including a woman, lost their lives in the Haflong revenue area of ??Dima Hasao. The hill district has been affected by flash floods and landslides at many places due to loss of rail and road connectivity with other parts of the state.
The ASDMA said landslides were reported from New Kunjang, Phyangpui, Moulhoi, Namjurang, Dakshin Bagetar, Mahadev Tila, Kalibari, North Bagetar, Zion and Lodi Pangmaul villages. About 80 houses have been badly affected here.
