Flash floods in Manipur strand thousands

November 14th, 2007 - 2:27 am ICT by admin  
The Imphal River is flowing above the danger mark for the past four days due to unseasonal rains.

Embankments were breached at Kiyangei and Irong Cheisaba, flooding several surrounding villages.

Those affected by the floods are being evacuated to safer places and relief material is being provided.

This is the second major flood in Manipur in the last two months.

In September, a major portion of the district was inundated by waters of the Imphal, Thoubal and Iril rivers. (ANI)
