The situation in Assam continued to worsen on Wednesday as floodwaters inundated fresh areas leaving nearly 17 lakh people affected.
Three people lost their lives on Wednesday in floodwaters. In the neighbouring Arunachal Pradesh, the situation is critical with huge areas of eastern Arunachal Pradesh bordering China and Myanmar still cut off from the rest of the state. In Assam, the death toll reached 12.
Floodwaters have marooned nearly 90% of the 430 sqkm Kaziranga National Park (KNP). As many as 129 of the 178 anti-poaching camps in KNP have been inundated, increasing the risk of rhino poaching. The national highway passing

through the periphery of Kaziranga has been shut, official sources said. 
In Assam, 21 districts are engulfed by floodwaters as the Brahmaputra and seven of its tributaries are flowing above the danger mark. Brahmaputra is in full spate in Dibrugarh, Tezpur, Jorhat, Goalpara and Guwahati. Tinsukia district, Jorhat and Sipajhar reported death of one person each in rain-related incidents.  Twelve people have died in floods in Assam this year, official sources further added.
Floods have totally ravaged Lakhimpur, Golaghat, Morigaon, Jorhat, Dhemaji, Sivsagar, Kokrajhar, Barpeta, Bongaigaon and Chirang districts.
