|High tides in Siang river|
ITANAGAR, Aug 9 - Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu has directed the Disaster Management Department to send a team to monitor the unusual high tides in Siang river in Mebo area of East Siang district, according to Mebo MLA Lombo Tayeng.
The MLA said the Chief Minister directed the department to send a team after he took up the issue of high tides in Siang river with Khandu. “Tides have been running unusually high in a normal weather condition and concentrated to affect Mebo areas, while the flow is totally normal upstream in Namsing and its adjoining areas, about 31 km upstream of Mebo,” Tayeng said last night. – PTI
