The flood situation in Assam was critical on Friday with 45.34 lakh people reeling under the deluge, officials said, according to a PTI report. The toll rose to 108 with seven deaths reported in the last 24 hours, they added. The situation in Silchar, considered 'Gateway to Barak Valley', is alarming with most areas still under water, a district official said.

The Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA) reportedly said that it has further expedited rescue and relief operations with additional resources deployed in the severely affected districts, especially Cachar where Silchar is located. Nearly 3 lakh people have been affected by an acute shortage of food, clean drinking water and medicines as almost the entire Silchar town is submerged in flood waters, officials said.
