Sept. 1: After inundating hundreds of villages, the rising water of mighty Brahmaputra has submerged a large portion of Kaziranga National Park forcing a large number of endangered animals to flee from the park for safer high lands.
The director of the park S.N. Buragohain said: "More than half of Kaziranga National Park is now under water. The park animals have started migrating towards safer high lands."
The Brahmaputra and its tributaries have submerged about 1,200 villages while displacing more than 50,000 people in eight districts of Assam.
