In this regard, the flood affected are passing their nights in temporary huts and relief camps. Most of the flood affected are presently residing in huts to pass the nights near the safety of their dwelling house, but the temporary huts are not safe enough in front of wild tusker.

The populations of the area as well as the wild tuskers are facing severe scarcity of food due to floods of Gai river from August 15. The wild tuskers have been destroying the paddy fields and godowns of paddy since the last several years.

Moreover, local people reported that a heard of 5 to 6 wild elephants have been staying in the nearby forest of Garmara-Ohtola since the last several years, but the flood of Gai river has changed the direction of the river and inundated the habitat of the elephants. At present, the Gai river is flowing through Takowbari-Kerakoni-Bhebali via Ohtola towards Brahmaputra river.
