Flash floods hit city

A shower that was among the briefest of the season swept away the tall claims and the ambitious projects of the Guwahati Development Department within hours. Once again the city today reeled under urban floods. The rains that fell measured 2.9 mm, but the disruption caused was immense. With the various agencies involved in maintaining drainage systems and adjoining hills apparently having failed to learn their lessons from the recent urban floods, city life again was seriously disrupted with arterial routes transformed into massive drains, and traffic coming to a standstill.
