Imphal, June 25 (EMN): Incessant rain in the past few days has caused havoc in Manipur’s Churachandpur district and left many  displaced on Saturday.

Villages along the eastern Khuga River downstream in Churachandpur’s Meitei Christian Leikai, Nengthawng Veng, Kerith Veng besides Ngulzen Veng, Kamdou Veng, Zoumunnuam localities were inundated due to the sudden rise of water levels of many small streams, while some homes and agricultural lands were submerged.

Even though residents are not aware of it, with 27 mm of rainfall, Churachandpur district recorded the highest rainfall among all the 16 districts of the state  on Saturday, according to the directorate of Environment and Climate Change weather data.

Even though water level in some residential areas of Churachandpur town areas has reduced, flood-affected families settling near the river banks of Khuga River are taking shelter at the relief camps set up under the aegis of the district administration at seven localities in the district.

The sub-divisional officer of Churachandpur, in an order on Saturday, said that all the village authorities and general public are requested to monitor the situation around the village and household and evacuate any household at very risky and risky areas to the evacuation centre without fail.

Like other North-eastern states, Manipur had been witnessing continuous rain since last Friday (June 17) after experiencing flash flood in mid-May this year due to advance rainfall.

As a result, six districts — Jiribam, Pherzawl, Noney, Tamenglong, Bishnupur and Imphal West — have been affected by the flood while Noney, Tamenglong and Jiribam districts were the worst affected.
