The United Nations is ready to assist the Indian government when needed, as devastating floods have displaced Assam Lakhs and killed more than 100 people, said a spokesman for the UN Secretary General.
"Our humanitarian colleagues tell us that nearly 4 million people in the Indian state of Assam and neighboring Nepal have been displaced due to severe flooding due to monsoon rains. The number of deaths was 189."
"The United Nations is ready to support the Indian government if necessary," said Secretary General Stephane Dujarric at the daily press conference on Monday.
He noted that the authorities in Nepal have urged people living on the riverside and lowland areas in the Terai region to move to safe places because of possible flooding.
"Access is the biggest challenge as search and rescue efforts are hampered by landslides in remote areas," he said.
The World Food Program (WFP) is working to reach affected communities, with helicopters currently the only viable option.
"We are of course ready to provide additional humanitarian aid to the most vulnerable communities in Nepal," said Stephane Dujarric.
The Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA) has reported that 24 districts in Assam are affected by floods in excess of 24.3 lakh.
The total number of people lost their lives in this year's floods and landslides has risen to 111 across the state, of which 85 were flooded and 26 died from landslides.
