Flooding has devastated the Baksa area of Assam, rendering the Diring river dangerous and causing a Fortuner to get carried away while attempting to cross the flooding waters. This terrible event highlights the lack of a bridge over the Diring river, which has caused inhabitants to travel through flooded regions, creating significant obstacles to their daily journeys and highlighting the region’s conspicuous lack of necessary infrastructure.
Numerous districts of Assam, including Biswanath, Bongaigaon, Chirang, Dhemaji, Dibrugarh, Kokrajhar, Majuli, Nalbari, Tamulpur, and Tinsukia, have been affected by the flood situation. In spite of the fact that no lives have been lost in the past twenty-four hours, the total death toll from the floods has regrettably reached seven.
Beki, Disang, and Brahmaputra rivers are now flowing over the danger threshold, aggravating the flood situation and heightening the hazard to impacted populations.
179 settlements throughout 19 revenue circles have been flooded as a result of the devastation caused by the flooding. In addition, roughly 2,211.99 hectares of agriculture in Assam have sustained considerable damage, aggravating the region’s difficulties.
