Just a mere week after the Southwest Monsoon arrived over Northeast India, various places in the state of Assam were hit by the second wave of flood this year on Tuesday night. By Wednesday, more than 9000 people were reported to be affected by the floods caused by the torrential rains.

Almost 29 villages in various districts like Lakhimpur, Dhemaji and Karbi were affected by the floods. More than 2000 hectares of crop area were damaged by the floods. The eastern district of Dhemaji is the most affected region with more than 8000 people displaced from this particular region.

Situated in the northern banks of River Brahmaputra, Dhemaji is the most flood affected region every year.  For Majuli islands, a flood warning has already been issued.

Before the Monsoon rains lashed the region, back in April this year, Assam witnessed its first floods of the year that claimed 9 lives. The first wave of flood was during the pre-Monsoon times and with above-normal Monsoon in store for India this year, Assam might be the house of constant floods.

Along with floods and constant mar of rains, landslides remain an unsaid issue for the state.

For the time being, the intensity of rains is expected to be low and mainly confined to the western regions of the state.
