As per Assam State Director Management Authority (ASDMA), the Brahmaputra river has been flowing above the dangerous water level which has created havoc in the state of Assam.
More than 45 lakh people have been affected who’ve taken refuge in 562 centres set up by the government. Ninety per cent of the Kaziranga National Park, the largest home to one-horned rhinoceroses has been submerged in water leaving only highlands for animals to seek shelter. The floods have claimed 55 lives in Assam and Bihar.
