With the rise of water level of River Brahamputra and its tributaries, the protected areas along the floodplains of river get affected with flood in most of the districts of Assam. The continued floods along with landslide have led to an increase in the death toll ending June 2012. According to media report, people in the affected areas have reported this as the worst flood in Assam in more than a decade. However, the flood situation is showing an improvement, as there is no rainfall in the upper catchment area since 29/June 2012.
The water levels of the Brahmaputra and its tributaries are now receding, though large stretches of land are still inundated.
