Floods Ravage Bihar and Assam, 37 Lakh People Affected
The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) is working tirelessly to evacuate people from these areas.
Floods continue to wreak havoc in Bihar and Assam. Gopalganj in Bihar is the worst-affected area, with the Gandak river breaching two embankments at three places, uprooting the lives of communities in nearby districts and villages. The movement of vehicles has also been stopped on NH-28 as the Dumariya Ghat faced the fury of the Gandak river. The ghat, which connects Motihari and Gopalganj, also serves as a link between Guwahati and Delhi.
With more than 10 flood-hit districts and the lives of almost 10 lakh people at stake, half of Bihar is currently submerged in water. Villagers from Motihari, Darbhanga and other low-lying areas have been forced to leave for relief camps.
Relief work has largely been possible only with helicopters. The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) is working tirelessly to evacuate people from these areas.
Assam, on the other hand continues to fight the devastating floods with an estimated 27.8 lakh people severely affected by the wrath of nature.
More incidents have emerged from other flood-hit parts of the country including Kurnool and Nalgonda in Andhra Pradesh.
