In flood-hit Assam, there is no respite from incessant rains across the state. Over 24 lakh people are affected by the second wave of floods. Rescue and other measures are being taken by the administration. Several ministers of the state visited flood-hit areas. Some parts of Guwahati also witnessed waterlogging. Flood water also damaged infrastructure and cropland. 
AIR Guwahati Correspondent said that the second wave of floods equally affected the domestic and wild animals. Flood water washed away hundreds of domestic animals and massively damaged fisheries. Several national parks and wildlife sanctuaries are also reeling under the water. 66 anti-poaching camps inundated in one of the worst affected Kaziranga National Park. 114 wild animals reported death including six rhinos at Kaziranga. Most of the deaths caused due to drowning. On the other hand, 100 animals have been rescued from drowning by the Kaziranga Park Authority.
