GUWAHATI: Even at the fag-end of September the State is yet to get rid of floods. Rains in the past few days have left many villages submerged, claiming the life of a person at Raha in Nagaon district in the past 24 hours. With this, the year's total flood toll in the State is 119. ASDMA (Assam State Disaster Management Authority) report says that 389 villages in 13 districts have been inundated, affecting around 3,17,977 people, besides the damage of 13,463 hectares of standing crops by the current wave of floods. The affected districts are Dhemaji, Lakhimpur, Biswanath, Kamrup, Morigaon, Hojai, Nagaon, Majuli, Jorhat, Sivasagar, Dibrugarh, Tinsukia and West Karbi Anglong. While the Brahmaputra is flowing above the danger mark at Neamatighat in Jorhat and Tezpur, the Jia Bharali is flowing above the danger level at NT Road Crossing in Sonitpur district and the Kopili at Dharamtul and Kampur in Nagaon district. Two relief camps in Nagaon district are giving shelter to 117 inmates and 11 relief distribution centres have been set up in Lakhimpur, Tinsukia and West Karbi Anglong.
