School buildings and houses that had survived the last have also been destroyed by the recent flood, eroding the last glimmer of hope in the hearts of the affected villagers.

As the floods began, locals had initially taken shelter in the forest behind the native house of Chief Minister Sonowal, with whatever nominal belongings they could rescue. However, as floodwater levels increased, they were forced to flee the forest area as well.
