At least 52 families are being evacuated. In the capital Aizawl town, at least 5 houses are being destroyed and landslides have blocked several roads, however roads are being cleared and rescue operations carried out.

Incessant rains in the last two days wrecked havoc in Mizoram, this is the first time Aizawl dist have heard of flash floods destroying houses forcing the inhabitants to leave their houses. Temporary shelters are being arranged by each village authority, and the state authority is yet to take stock of the damages as connectivity and communication lines are being snapped by the bad weather. However today we see a lovely sunny day and we hope the flood would recede and relief and rehabilitation would be carried out smoothly.
