২৭ মে’, গুৱাহাটী - Floods wreaked havoc in two more districts of Assam as incessant rains worsened the already grim situation in the state with rapidly increasing COVID-19 cases.
Floods have affected around 2 lakh people in 229 villages of 7 districts - Dhemaji, Lakhimpur, Darrang, Nalbari, Goalpara, Dibrugarh and Tinsukia, in Assam so far.
Close to 9,000 people have been taking shelter in 35 relief camps set up in Dhemaji, Lakhimpur, Goalpara and Tinsukia districts.
