Assam Floods: 15 lakh

Guwahati: Nearly 15 lakh people are affected by Assam floods after torrential rains that killed 7. People living in 25 of the 33 districts of Assam are affected.
Officials said the situation could worsen as the meteorologist predicted more precipitation in the next 24 hours. National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) is actively evacuating people living in low-lying areas in aid camps across the country, officials said.
So far, more than 20,000 have been transferred to 68 relief camps. Barpeta is worst hit, with more than five displaced people, say official sources.
The Center has convinced the state government of all possible help in resolving the floods. Earlier on Sunday, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal reported to Amit Shah, the interior minister of the Union, about floods over the phone.
Chess held a high-level meeting to discuss the situation in Assam and other countries affected by falling rains across the country.
The water level in 10 rivers in the country, including the part of the Brahmaputra flowing through Guwahati, has crossed the mark of danger. Control rooms open 24 hours are set up to respond to emergency calls.
Reports say over 70 percent of Kaziranga National Park is flooded in floods. Animals moved to safer places, officials say.
