Flood scene remains unchanged

The overall flood scene remains unchanged on Thursday. Over one lakh people have been rendered homeless in 15 districts. The death toll stands at eight. Incessant rain in the 15 districts spread across upper, central and lower Assam caused the first wave of floods.


Among the worst affected districts are Dhubri, Nalbari, Barpeta, Morigaon, Jorhat, Dibrugarh and Tinsukia. Besides deploying boats have been deployed to transport affected people to safer places, the district administration has been running relief and rescue operation. Parts of low laying areas in the Kaziranga National Park have also come under the surging waters forcing the animals to shift their base.
