LIGHTNING STRIKE AND KILLED A NEWLYWEEDS INDIAN'S COUPLE

GUWAHATI, India - A newly married couple was killed in a lightning strike while flash floods triggered by heavy rains displaced more than 10,000 people in 25 villages in Assam yesterday, officials said.
A police spokesperson said the couple died when lightning struck their home in village Bokulguri in Nagaon district, about 160km east of Guwahati.
  • "The two died instantly as their thatched hut was severely damaged in lightning," the official said.
  • Meanwhile, flash floods inundated 25 villages in Lakhimpur district with the Brahmaputra River breaching two embankments.
  • "So far about 10,000 people have been displaced with many taking shelter on raised platforms," an official said.
  • Floodwaters of the mighty Brahmaputra also entered the 430 sq km Kaziranga National Park in Assam forcing scores of endangered animals to flee the park to safer areas, officials said.
  • "More than half of the park is under water. Animals are migrating from the sanctuary to an adjoining hill for safety," a park warden said.
