GUWAHATI, June 30: More than a million people have been affected by flooding in northeastern India, where the death toll over the past week rose to 13, authorities said on Monday.
Flooding is an annual phenomenon in India's northeast, claiming hundreds of lives each year.
"The flood situation is grim in Assam. More than a million people have been hit by this year's" rising waters, Assam Disaster Management Authority's state project coordinator, Pankaj Chakravarty, told AFP.
The state was first hit in mid-May when pre-monsoon rains arrived, causing floods that killed 11 people. Another 20 died in landslides caused by days of incessant downpours.    -AFP
