The flood victims in Upper Assam's Tinsukia district accused that flood was caused after NEEPCO released water from its dam in neighbouring state of Arunachal Pradesh.
Assam has been reeling under floods since June.
The worst hit district is western Assam's Dhubri where 1.92 lakh people have had to abandon their houses to live temporarily on higher grounds.
"Around 11 lakh people of 19 districts are affecting in the second wave flood". Around 1 lakh hectares of cropland has also been submerged.
Personnel of the State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) and National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) are now engaged in rescue and relief operations in flood-affected areas of the State. The army has also been put on standby for emergency rescue operation, sources added.
Dhemaji, Lakhimpur, Biswanath, Baksa, Barpeta, Bongaigaon, Chirang, Kokrajhar, Dhubri, Jorhat, Majuli, Sivasagar, Charaideo, Dibrugarh and Tinsukia districts have been affected by the fresh wave of floods following the one last month.
According to Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA), eight districts have been affected with the number of affected population increasing to 63 329. Nine other rivers are also flowing above danger mark in Assam. A portion of National Highway 415, which connects state capital Itanagar with Assam, eroded near Karsingsa on Friday. Brahmaputra and its tributaries are also reported to be flowing above the danger level at several places.
In Meghalaya, the Kynshi River is flowing above the danger level, inundating low lying areas in Kauai hills. Normal Monsoon conditions persisted over Gangetic West Bengal, remaining parts of northeastern states, Odisha, Coastal Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Rayalaseema, Gujarat, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Kerala, and Karnataka.
Due to this rainfall, the rivers like Brahmaputra and its tributaries in Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Meghalaya, Northern tributaries of Ganga in Eastern UP, North Bihar are likely to rise and create low to high flood with unprecedented flood in few locations. Heavy rains have badly affected train movement in the region.
