Assam has been affected massively by the floods. It was reported that 108 wild animals including nine rhinos have died during floods in Assam’s Kaziranga National Park and Tiger Reserve. Over seven million people have been affected by the floods this year.
The death toll in the floods has risen to 84. “People, as well as animals, are being rescued from the affected areas and being shifted to relief camps and safer locations,” Assam chief minister Sarbanand Sonowal said. “On one hand, people are troubled due to COVID-19 and on the other hand there are challenges arising out of floods. Still, the people of our state continue to fight the battle,” he added.
