37535 residents displaced, One dead in landslide in Assam floods

Assam:  The latest update of the Government of Assam Flood Reporting and Information Management System has revealed that a total of 146 villages in the state have been severely affected by floods as of June 17. Reports indicate that the total population is 37535. People have been affected by the floods, with the most affected residents in Biswanath district, totaling 3,631.
Families have been forced to leave their homes and take shelter in makeshift shelters, as rising waters have made their homes uninhabitable.
In response to the crisis, local administrations and disaster response teams are working tirelessly to provide relief and assistance to affected communities. Relief camps and distribution centers have been set up in the affected districts.
Biswanath has established four such camps, while Dibrugarh, Lakhimpur, Tinsukia, and Udalguri have opened one each. The centers aim to provide shelter, food, clean water and essential supplies to those displaced by the floods, offering a ray of hope amid the chaos.
Amid the human suffering, the floods have also affected the animal population of the region. Rising waters have inundated farmland and habitats, leaving animals stranded and vulnerable. A total of 11,980 animals have been affected by the floods, further exacerbating the crisis.
Biswanath, Dibrugarh, Lakhimpur, Sonitpur, and Udalguri are the districts that are seeing the worst impact on the animal population.
Apart from floods, landslides have affected some areas, adding to the challenges faced by the state. Dima-Hasao, especially in places like Damadi Hawar and Dihur Phonglo village, have witnessed landslide damage.
Infrastructure, including roads and houses, has been badly affected, adding to the hardships faced by the affected communities. Kamrup (M) district, particularly Dhirenpara and Sonali Path in Guwahati also experienced a devastating landslide that claimed the life of 35-year-old Mukhtar Ali, a resident of Barpeta.
