Flood Hit Over 2 Million People in Assam, India

Two million people have been hit by flooding in the north-eastern Indian state of Assam. Floodwater has submerged thousands of villages, and hundreds of relief camps have been set up to shelter people.

While a heavy monsoon in the region is common, this year comes as India battles rising Covid-19 infections.

Animals in the area have also been affected as swathes of the Kaziranga National Park were submerged. Officials say tigers and rhinos have strayed into nearby villages to avoid rising waters.
