More than 12 lakh people have been affected in floods in 16 districts of Assam as many rivers continue to flow above the danger level, the authorities said on Wednesday.

Officials said at least 10 people have died since 18th August and two people died due to floods in Lakhimpur and Morigaon districts on Tuesday as per the latest casualty report.

According to the State Disaster Management Authority (SDMA), 1,265,449 people were affected due to floods as the surging waters of Brahmaputra and its tributaries inundated 2,093 villages in the 16 districts.

Due to the heavy flood 163,052 people moved to take shelter in 212 relief camps set up by the administrations. Floods have also damaged standing crops in 112,635.25 hectares of land said Officials.

The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and the State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) have been pressed into service.

Officials said that over 100 boats of the NDFR, SDRF and the Inland Water Transport department were engaged in relief and rescue operations in Morigaon, Barpeta Kamrup, Nalbari, Dhemaji, Tinsukia and Sonitpur districts.

Officials said the Brahmaputra river is flowing above the danger level in Jorhat, Guwahati, Tezpur, Goalpara and Dhubri areas too.
