The flood situation in Assam has reached a critical stage, posing a huge threat to the affected areas. Recent reports reveal that the floods have negatively affected an additional 9,000 people in Lakhimpur, Dehmaji and Dibrugarh districts, doubling the impact on the previously reported 21,000 individuals in Dimaji and Lakhimpur districts.

Rescue operations have been intensified with the participation of both the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and the Government Disaster Response Force (SDRF) in Lakhimpur district.

Amid the worsening flood situation, the state faced another blow as a 4.8-magnitude earthquake struck the state border on Friday. According to the National Center of Seismology, the quake occurred at 10.16 am, with its epicenter at a depth of 70 kilometers in the Sylhet district of Bangladesh.

The tremors lasted 20 seconds and were greatly felt in southern Assam. Fortunately, no injuries or property damage have been reported since the earthquake.

This seismic event comes on the heels of a 3.7-magnitude earthquake that occurred just last week, with its epicenter located 39 kilometers west of Tezpur at a depth of 10 kilometers.

The simultaneous occurrence of devastating floods and an earthquake has added to the challenges faced by the people of Assam. The authorities are working tirelessly to address the flood situation and provide relief efforts, as well as the impact of the earthquake.
