|Silchar : Climatic
Floods , earthquakes , landslides
and cyclones .. yes everything happens in Silchar . Silchar like
the rest of Assam is a seismic area and experiences earthquakes pretty
often. Most tremors are results of eathquakes with shillong as the epicenter.
At Silchar the wind
generally blows from the northeast in the morning and from the southeast
in the afternoon. About the end of february stormy weather sets in and
in march there are often thunderstorms and the soon the water level starts
rising in the river Barak. It rains quites heavily in July and August and
generaly the outskirts of the town get flooded causing extensive damage
to the poor farmers .
In summer its hot and in
winters its cool... but it never reaches extreme levels . The early rains
in the summer brings in the most needed relief to the people .
