The overall flood situation in Assam turned from bad to worse on Tuesday, with the authorities shifting over 1.27 lakh people to 322 relief camps across 19 districts that were reeling under floods as the Brahmaputra and many of its tributaries inundated more areas in the state. The death toll in the current floods has risen to 10.

The Brahmaputra and its tributaries caused major breaches in Lakhimpur, Morigaon, Nagaon, Barpeta and Dhubri districts, while roads and bridges have been washed away in Kamrup, Nalbari, Jorhat, Dhemaji, Darrang, Tinsukia, Golaghat, Chirang, Dibrugarh and Kokrajhar in addition to the above districts.

Rising water of the Brahmaputra has also inundated the world-famous Kaziranga National Park, with DFO Suvasish Das saying about 80 per cent of the 859-sq km Park’s southern part was submerged till Tuesday. The Brahmaputra that once formed the northern boundary of Kaziranga, now flows through it after about 429 sq kms of new area to its north was added to the Park.

With the water-level continuing to rise, the authorities have shifted forest protection staff from 20 anti-poaching camps to higher grounds on Tuesday. Of the 178 anti-poaching camps – all set on raised platforms – as many as 129 were standing on several feet of flood, DFO Das informed.

Four hog deer were killed after being knocked down by speeding vehicles in NH-715 that forms the Park’s southern boundary, while forest guards rescued one 3-month old rhino calf and 17 hog deer from being washed away or drowned. Some of the rescued animals which were injured have been shifted to the Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation (CWRC) nearby. Three hog deer meanwhile have been reported drowned.
