Assam is Reeling under Flood yet again, this time amidst the COVID Pandemic to make the situation worse. The death toll due to the floods has climbed up to 71. Over 48 lakh people have been affected in over 4500 villages in 30 of the 33 districts of the state. The rescue operations are on in various places and teams of SDRF, NDRF, state police and locals are helping the affected people. According to reports the various district administrations have set up 487 relief camps and distribution centres where more than 1.25 lakh people have taken shelter.
Kaziranga National park too is facing the havoc created by the Brahmaputra river. As many as 66 animals have died and 170 animals have been rescued from the park as flood water submerged the area.
Arunachal Pradesh is also facing similar situations as Assam. Low lying areas of the state have been flooded due to water flowing over danger mark in Dibang and Siang River after heavy and incessant rainfall for several days, and landslides have caused havoc in the state. At least 8 people including an infant have been killed in two separate incidents of landslides in the state.
