Dhemaji (Assam): Around 30,000 people of 25 villages of Assam have been affected, as floods went on to wreak havoc on Dhemaji district on Wednesday
    
The situation is likely to get worse as the water level of Jiadhol river, a tributary of the mighty Brahmaputra, has swelled up alarmingly after torrential rainfall in the neighbouring state of Arunachal Pradesh.
    
The flood water has inundated 25 villages under Noruathan and Ghughua circles in west Dhemaji affecting more than 30,000 people, the sources said adding the residents have left their homes and taken shelter in the highlands.
    
There has, however, been no report of any casualty or injury so far.
    
The district administration has directed the concerned authorities to provide relief to the affected people, the sources added.
