September 26 - Monsoon flooding leaves two million homeless in India

Article: Signs Of The Last Times
 

More than two million people in Assam in North-East India have been forced to leave their homes after rising floods left almost two thousand villages under water. Eighteen people have died in the tragedy and many more are missing as rescue teams have been hampered by poor weather.
 
According to government disaster management officials more than 400,000 in the state are living in temporary relief shelters. Several hundred thousand homes have been destroyed.
 
The floods were caused by driving monsoon rains and fast-rising water levels in five of the state's main rivers, including the biggest of them, the Brahmaputra, which has risen beyond its danger level.
 
Government relief teams have been dropping food supplies to stranded villages but some families have said they fear starvation because relief has yet to reach them.
 
Rupamoni Payeng, a mother-of-three said it was the third time this year she had fled to an elevated section of land on the submerged island of Majuli to escape flooding. "We have not got any relief supplies from the government and are almost starving," she said. "Some food packets were dropped by helicopters, but there was a mad scramble and only a few managed to collect."

The floods and the scale of displacement is the latest in a series of natural and man-made disasters to blight Assam in recent months. An estimated 400,000 people had been forced to flee their homes this summer after outbreaks of ethnic violence between local Assamese and Muslim Bangladeshi migrants left 80 people dead.

The Brahmaputra has flooded three times this monsoon season, the worst the state has faced since 2004 when 200 people lost their lives and an estimated five million people fled their homes.
