  • Villagers wade through flood waters while carrying household items at the flood affected Koliabor village 186km from Guwahati on Sunday

The states of Assam, Tripura, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh have been badly hit and the weather department has issued a red alert till Sunday.

The rains in India have triggered fresh spell of floods in many states.

Following the devasting flood, around 64,000 people are homeless and forced them to take shelter in the relief camps set up by the districts administration.

The NDRF is also conducting rescue operations across the state.

The month-long first wave of floods in July had claimed 82 lives and affected 25.42 lakh people in 29 districts. Four people have died in floods in Assam in past 24 hours.

The water level in the main channel of Brahmaputra River is flowing above the danger mark in Guwahati, Dibrugarh, Jorhat, Tezpur and Dhubri while at least eight of its tributaries are also flowing above the danger level, according to the report of Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA).

Of the five deaths on Saturday, two were reported from Dhemaji district and one each from Lakhimpur, Morigaon and Kokrajhar. A portion of National Highway 415, which connects state capital Itanagar with Assam, eroded near Karsingsa on Friday. "The water level of Burhidehing, Subansiri, Dhansiri, Jia Bharali, Puthimari, Beki, Gaurang, Sankosh also crossed danger level marks in many places", a top official of ASDMA said.

In Agartala, the capital of Tripura, almost 20,000 people have taken shelter in relief camps.

Floods also wreaked havoc in the river island of Majuli forcing the affected to flee to highlands. The worst-affected area is the South Garo Hills.

Due to this rainfall, the rivers like Brahmaputra and its tributaries in Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Meghalaya, Northern tributaries of Ganga in Eastern UP, North Bihar are likely to rise and create low to high flood with unprecedented flood in few locations. Normal Monsoon conditions persisted over Gangetic West Bengal, remaining parts of northeastern states, Odisha, Coastal Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Rayalaseema, Gujarat, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Kerala, and Karnataka. In North Bengal, nearly all trains are running late.
