Monsoon floods displace thousands in northeast India. At least 50000 people were forced from their homes after heavy rains triggered flash floods across more than 40 villages in Assam state's Lakhimpur District on Saturday, August 21. As floodwaters from the Singora River rose, residents fled to higher ground such as raised platforms and railway tracks. District officials are attempting to block some breaches in two embankments, as disaster management teams are on standby. Agencies have also prepared essential supplies for the flood afflicted. Meanwhile, officials are on alert in Dhemaji District, where 12 villages were swept by a third wave of floods on Wednesday as water levels of the Simen River rose above the danger mark. Our appreciation, district officials and agencies, for your prompt initiatives to safeguard those in the flood-hit regions. Wishing the people of India a smooth resuming of their regular daily lives and that such treacherous conditions are eased as humanity's increased stewardship fosters equilibrium in the ecosphere.

Reuters Alert Net
Between the 26th September - 1st October 2009 heavy rains fell in the districts of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka in Southern India. Flash flooding and the breaching of 5 mega dams caused substantial loss of life, land, livelihoods and the destruction of many homes and villages; affecting an estimated 2 million people. Oxfam India's early response team assessed the worse affected areas emphasising that the biggest threat to public health would be access to adequate and improved water and sanitation. Almost immediately Oxfam India began to distribute hygiene kits to 9000 families in 35 villages and currently OI is operational in these districts promoting public hygiene through village campaigns and village cleaning involving the local communities. This series of images is a testament and a dedication to the resilience of these disaster affected communities and to the commitment of the ongoing efforts of the Oxfam India team. * The first 5 images courtesy of various partners in the field.

Some villagers have returned home to assess the damage, but for many, there is nothing left to go back to. Aid agencies are setting up makeshift camps to offer some relief with the basic supplies. Al Jazeera's Prerna Suri visited one camp in the town of Alampur in Andhra Pradesh, one of the worst hit regions.
