GUWAHATI - Floods caused by heavy monsoon rains have killed at least 30 people and displaced nearly one million in India's northeastern state of Assam.
At least 27 Indian districts have been swamped by heavy monsoon rains that began last weekend. The overall flooding situation is worsening as additional areas have been overrun with water. Beyond the 30 reported deaths, many others have gone missing after a boat capsize in Goalpara district, the Hindi language news channel ABP reports.
Officials say 2,084 villages across Assam state have been flooded, the news agency UKPA reports.
Assam Agriculture Minister Nilamoni Sen Deka told AFP in Guwahati, the state's largest city, that an estimated 900,000 people had been displaced from their homes due to the flooding.
