GUWAHATI: Assam is reeling under the worst-ever floods of the century. In the first wave alone from April to June, 126 people have died and over 700 animals drowned even as fear of the second wave hitting soon looms large. Seventeen people are reported missing. The annual devastation comes in multiple waves - ranging from three to four - beginning April.

According to State Disaster Management Authority, 23,91,369 people have been affected and of the 4,540 villages that came under water, 550 are still flooded.

The current wave was declared by the state government as the worst since 2004 in which 201 people and over 100 animals died in four waves. "Initially, this was seen as worse as the one in 2004. But eventually it turned out to be even bigger. We are still witnessing the first wave. The next one is expected to hit the state soon," said state government spokesman and agriculture minister Nilamoni Sen Deka.

The minister said 40 per cent of the state's area, including 2.54 lakh hectares of crop area, has been affected by the current floods. "The estimated loss to farmers is about Rs 900 crore. Besides, there is silt cover in crop areas where the waters have receded. This needs to be cleared before the next sowing season in August," added Deka.

The southwest monsoon-fed floods first hit Karimganj district in the Barak Valley in April, which was followed by Lakhimpur on the northern banks of the Brahmaputra Valley in May. But the devastating phase started on June 24, when the water level of the Brahmaputra and all its tributaries crossed the danger mark due to incessant rain in the catchment areas of the Brahmaputra, particularly in China and Arunachal Pradesh.

According to the Met office, rainfall in the region was 60 per cent in excess in June. Along with devastating floods, the monsoon also triggered landslides, which have so far claimed 16 human lives, including 10 in the city alone.

Since the first wave hit the state, 622 relief camps were set up and 208 of them, with 67,903 inmates, are still in operation. The state government has deployed 77 medical teams. Besides loss to human lives, the floods has destroyed the infrastructure, which includes massive destruction to as many as seven national highways.

In the Brahmaputra Valley, 42 breaches in embankments involving the Brahmaputra and 14 other tributaries have been reported. In the Barak Valley, a breach has been reported in the Longai river of Karimganj district. This apart, 2,948 roads have been damaged with breaches at 1,881 points, covering a length of 79.07 km. Twelve SPT bridges and 12 culverts have been washed away, two 2 RCC bridges have collapsed and approach to 277 other RCC viaducts have been damaged.

Train connectivity to the hill districts has also been hit as rail tracks have been badly damaged by landslides in the Lumding-Badarpur railway division, disrupting movement of passengers and essential commodities.

The Indian Air Force first started operations to rescue marooned people after which teams of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), the Army and CRPF were pressed into service. While 16 teams of NDRF have been deployed in nine districts, seven Army teams have been deployed in six other districts.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, during his visit to the state on July 2, announced an ad hoc assistance of Rs 500 crore to help the state make up for the flood loss till the final assistance is announced after assessment by a central team, which is currently touring the state. The state government, on its own, assessed a damage of Rs 11,136 crore.

Apart from financial aid, chief minister Tarun Gogoi is asking for a water resource authority to mitigate flood problem by involving China, Myanmar and Bangladesh, which share a common river system together with the region.

As urban areas expand, the
