Monsoons have hit Assam with full force and situations have turned dangerous. The heavy rains hit the state on the 9th of July, and have been piling on ever since. 

The state is now flooded, and has displaced people from many districts. According to reports, over 26.5 lakh people have been affected from 28 out of 33 districts in Assam. Out of the 28 districts affected, the worst hit are Barpeta, Morigaon and Dhubri. 

According to reports from the Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA), casualties were from the districts of Jorhat, Barpeta and Dhubri. The total death toll is now at 11. 

Kumar Sanjay Krishna, Additional Chief Secretary (Revenue and Disaster Management) revealed at a press conference on Sunday, 

As per the Met department forecast, there will be more rainfall across Assam and the water level in the Brahmaputra is likely to rise. Dhubri and other lower Assam districts will probably see more severe flood in coming days.

Efforts are being made by the NDRF and the SDRF, as well as troops from the Indian Army to evacuate citizens across the state. Food and other essential requirements have also been distributed among those affected by the floods. 

The floods have also hit 70% of the Kaziranga National Park, as 95 camps were submerged into water. Because of the extreme situation, forest officers were asked to remain on duty and their leaves were also cancelled. The animals in the park were all moved towards the highlands. 

River Brahmaputra too is reported to be flowing above danger level at Nimatighat in Jorhat, Tezpur, Guwahati, Goalpara and Dhubri.

In case of an emergency, citizens can contact the Assam State Disaster Management Authority on their toll-free numbers, or any of these numbers.
