Looming humanitarian crisis in North-East as floods wreak havoc

Incessant rains lasting over six days have wreaked havoc in Meghalaya and Assam, flooding the two States severely and taking over 50 lives and affecting over three lakh people. South West Garo Hill district, West Gao Hill district and North Garo Hills district in Meghalaya are severely affected and adjacent districts of Goalpara, Dhubri and Kamrup in Assam are also inundated. The Borjhar-based Regional Meteorology Centre has predicted heavy to very heavy rains on the 25th of September, which could add to the woes of affected people.
