12 reported missing in floods in northeastern India

New Delhi (dpa) - At least 12 persons were reported missing while trying to flee floodwaters which inundated parts of the capital of the northeastern Indian state of Assam on Wednesday.

The floods also entered Kaziranga National Park, home of the endangered one-horned rhinoceros, as wildlife officials launched operations to move animals to higher ground.

About 25,000 people in the Assam capital of Guwahati have been affected by floods. Officials said the situation could worsen if the Brahmaputra river, the lifeline of the state, continued to rise.

Global cereal output in 2001 is provisionally estimated at 1 880 million tonnes (including rice in milled terms), slightly up from the forecast in December and 1.2 percent up on the previous year. However, with global cereal utilization in 2001/02 still forecast to be well above this level at 1 935 million tonnes, the global cereal stocks will be drawn down significantly.

While overall food supply prospects for 2002 are more favourable than in the past two years, millions of people in developing countries still need emergency food assistance due

Floods and Earthquakes in India updated Nov 2001

India was just beginning to recover from the devastation of January's powerful earthquake in Gujarat when heavy rains in July brought destruction to Orissa, India.

In addition to those killed by the latest round of rains, some 46,000 people have been evacuated to relief camps. Together, these disasters have taken more than 30,000 lives and left hundreds of thousands homeless and

Floods and Earthquakes in India updated Oct 2001

India was just beginning to recover from the devastation of January's powerful earthquake in Gujarat, when heavy rains in July brought destruction to Orissa. Together, these two disasters took more than 30,000 lives and left hundreds of thousands homeless and vulnerable to diseases such as malaria and diarrhea. It takes time for a country to recover from destruction like this. Homes must be rebuilt. Food must be replaced. Whole communities will have to find a way to start over again while families are missing mothers, fathers and children. Reconstruction
