“I directed all departments to remain vigilant and proactive until September, given the unpredictable monsoon season. Our teams must be ready to respond to any eventuality, ensuring even unaffected areas are prepared for potential impacts. We will work tirelessly to guarantee the safety and well-being of our people during these challenging times”, he further added.

Meanwhile, the flood situation remained unchanged on Thursday, as major rivers continued to surge above the danger mark.

Landslides triggered by rain have snapped surface communication in at least seven districts of Arunachal Pradesh.

The districts affected by landslides are Siang, East Siang, Upper Siang, West Siang, Shi Yomi, Leparada and Upper Subansiri.

A portion of the NH-13 along the Pasighat-Pangin-Aalo road has been blocked following a landslide today morning. A huge boulder has completely blocked the road in between Lokpeng and Pangin tri-junction in Siang district. The Nigmoi-Aalo bypass road has also been blocked due to landslides in several locations.
