    44 disaster relief teams have been deployed in flood-affected areas in 12 states, and have rescued 894 stranded/marooned persons so far in Assam and Bihar, an official statement said on Friday.

    13 of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams are deployed in Assam, 9 in Bihar and the remaining in Arunachal Pradesh, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Jammu and Kashmir, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and West Bengal to assist the state governments in rescue and relief work, sources said.

    Those rescued by the self-contained NDRF teams include 497 persons in Assam and 397 in Bihar.

    In Assam, 307 people were evacuated from Jorhat district, 37 from Kokrajhar, 80 from Charang and 73 from Kamrup. In Bihar, 43 persons were evacuated from Supaul, 34 from Bhetia, 250 from Purnia and 70 from Gopalganj.

    The NDRF teams have also been providing mobile hospital facilities to flood-affected people in Assam and have set up medical camps in Bihar.

    The mobile hospital facilities are also being provided at Meragarh and Missamora villages in Assam where floods have caused havoc and displaced thousands.

    “The medical teams have attended to 163 sick persons and distributed medicines to the needy in different area in Assam,” as per the official statements.

    The NDRF teams have also established medical camps in some blocks in Muzzafarpur and Supaul districts in Bihar.

    “A round-the-clock NDRF control room in New Delhi is closely monitoring the situation and is in touch with other government agencies,” the statement said.
