The water level of river Brahmaputra in Guwahati rose 12 cm in a span of 12 hours between 6 pm on Sunday to 6 am on Monday.
The water level of Brahmaputra river has crossed the danger mark for the first time after the 2020 floods. According to the Central Water Commission, last time Brahmaputra crossed the high-flow level of 51. 46 was in 2004.
