The overall flood situation in Assam improved considerably during the past one week, even as one more person died in Morigaon district on Thursday taking the death toll to 108, officials said.India Meteorological Department (IMD) officials said that the let-up in the monsoon rains since last Friday has made the flood situation better. The officials expected that it will improve further in the coming days.Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA) officials said that 12 lakh people in 1,339 villages across 22 of the state's 33 districts are still affected by the floods, though the number has come down since July 24 when over 28 lakh people in 2,543 villages of 26 districts were distressed.A total of 82,170 hectares of crops are still flooded, but the area has come down from 122,573 hectares as on July 24.
