Heavy rains over the past two days have worsened the ongoing flood situation in India’s Assam State.

According to the latest Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA) report, nearly half a million people are affected across 22 of the state’s 31 districts. On 22 June, the state recorded its first flood-related death this year. Over 14,000 people are displaced in 83 relief camps.

The western Assam districts of Bajali, Nalbari, and Barpeta are the worst hit, accounting for half of the affected.

The state and central disaster response teams engaged in search, rescue, and relief efforts.

The flood situation is expected to deteriorate as the India Meteorological Department (IMD) issues 'Orange Alert' for heavy rains in the coming days
