Floods in West Bengal have affected over 80,000 people in Darjeeling, 22,000 in Jalpaiguri and 40,000 people in Cooch Behar.

Over 2,000 homes have been fully or partially damaged leaving several people homeless.

Landslides in the area of Kalimpong and Kurseong in Darjeeling districts made the areas completely cut off.

Nearly 60 relief camps have been set up to provide aid in the affected areas. National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and Army personnel are working day and night to carry rescue and relief works.

Narayan Chatterjee, chairman of North Bengal Flood Control Authority said, "With the decrease in rainfall, the water level of major rivers has been receding. The flood situation in the districts is likely to improve over the coming days".

State Irrigation Minister Manas Bhunia, visited the affected areas and said that the administration is closely watching bank of Teesta and other major rivers.
