The other passengers travelling in the Nagarbera-bound traveller, which was coming from Guwahati, managed to escape unhurt.

High-velocity winds coupled by heavy rains damaged houses in several areas of Goalpara district including Simlitola, Barpathar and Tiplai. Power supply was also disrupted at a couple of places due to broken power lines.

The inclement weather has brought parts of the district to a standstill with roads and other public places wearing a deserted look.
