Floods and landslides kill dozens in northeast India

Severe floods and landslides triggered by extreme rain events have killed dozens of people in India’s remote northeast, said reports.

At least 21 people have lost their lives and another 24 are missing and presumed dead in flood affected areas of Garo Hills region in Meghalaya, said state government officials, reported Times of India.

In Meghalaya, dozens of villages were inundated by flash floods, as forecasters warned of more rains through Thursday.

Floods have killed at least 14 others in Assam, where multiple districts inducing Gauhati, the state capital, were inundated.

At least 300,000 people have been affected by the latest round of disasters, including about 30,000 displaced.

Floods killed hundreds of people and left tens of thousands homeless in Indian-controlled Kashmir and Pakistan earlier this month.
