Several Dead in Indian Floods

Large parts of India have been flooded after a number of rivers started flowing above danger level. At least 17 people have been reportedly killed in flood-related incidents in Madhya Pradesh State.
And in eastern Bihar, at least 15,000 people have been evacuated from their homes after a “flood-like situation” in a dozen districts.
Floods are common in India during the monsoon season between June and September, BBC reported.
But excessive rains this year have led to water levels in several major rivers to rise, leading to flooding in many parts of India.
In Bihar, where at least six rivers are flowing above the danger mark, thousands of people have taken shelter in more than 80 relief camps, reports say.
People have taken shelter on the roofs of their submerged huts and houses along the banks of the river are inundated.
“We are facing a lot of problems; everything has been submerged in river. There is no arrangement of food, drinking water or boats. We don’t know what to do,” a resident in Patna city told Reuters.
In neighboring Uttar Pradesh State, the Ganges River has been flowing above the danger mark and people living in low-lying areas have been moving to higher ground.
“Water has been gushing in the area for the last three days. All the land has been inundated with floodwater. All the crops have been damaged. Water has started entering our houses,” said a villager, Shyam.
