So my entire neighborhood is having a voltage and fluctuations issues and i recently got a new PSU so will these fluctuations damage my PC or my PSU? with my old PSU when it fluctuates it just freezes the PC except the mouse and it will take a few mins for it to come back to normal. So will my PC die because of this fluctuations?

Yes highly possible, even top tier hardware dies from big fluctuations.... if your concern a lot, get yourself and UPS... if its happening really frequently.
If its once a month, its not that big deal, especially if the spikes in current are not that big.

And i looked at the voltage for my new PSU using hwmonitor and it said
+3.3V 3.408 V
+5V 5.112 V
are these number good?

Those numbers look good. You are looking at about 3 point something percent on the 3.3V rail and about 2 something percent on the 5V. Max tolerance for either is 5% deviation.
