6 dead, over 8 lakh affected as the horror story of Assam flood continues

The state of Assam has got devastated by the monsoon floods. More than 21 districts in the states have been flooded, and the lives of 8 lakh people have got affected by this turmoil.

A monsoon flood in Assam has swamped at least 21 of the 27 districts in Assam. It has affected over eight lakh people. Six people have lost their lives in this natural disaster. The situation has not been in control yet and is feared to remain even severe for a few more days.

As the water level of the Brahmaputra river, which flows through Guwahati has crossed the warning mark, the situation has become critical for the people in Assam.

If the rain continues pouring in the same way, then the water level can even reach the danger level and can cause even more destruction.

The inland waterway authority officer V Gandhiya has warned that in one or two days the water level of the Brahmaputra river will cross the danger mark.

The river has crossed the danger mark already at Nimati Ghat, and the water level of other rivers like Dhansiri, Dikhow, Puthimari and Jia is also above the danger mark.

The entire situation seems to be quite horrifying as one person got injured on Thursday and two houses got brutally destroyed after a landslide in Dipar Bil which is an urban area near Guwahati.

A total of 13,26774 hectares of crop area has also got destroyed in flood. This situation is estimated to become worst in the coming days as there are chances of the state to receive more rainfall.

Meanwhile, Sarbananda Sonowal, the chief minister of Assam, has directed the District Commissioner to keep all round check over the situation.

The government officers have also been asked to update the stock of medicines and ensure availability of experienced Doctors in the hospitals.

Due to flood, Japenese Encephalitis and Acute Encephalitis Syndrome have occurred in Assam. The state government is working in tandem with the National Disaster Response Force to carry out the relief work.
