Guwahati, Jul 9 (UNI) The overall flood situation in Assam has improved marginally although the Brahmaputra river was still flowing above the danger level at Dibrugarh, with signs of receding.

The latest Central Water Commission (CWC) reports stated the river was flowing above the danger level at Neematighat as well at Buridehing. Besides, river Desang was flowing above the danger level at Sivsagar.

The situation in the the worst-hit Dhemaji and Lakhimpur districts, however, continued to be grim even though the railway links had been restored.

Rivers Gai and Jiadhol, along with Ranganadi, had inundated vast tracts of habitation and cropland.

In Lakhimpur district alone, 50 villages had been affected in the latest flash floods.
