More than 100 people have been killed by heavy monsoon rains in India that has forced tens of thousands of people to take shelter in relief camps.
“The excessive rain for the past two days coupled with high tide and water released from Jharkhand and Odisha has rendered the flood situation in West Bengal beyond control. People in vulnerable areas should take shelter in relief camps to avoid untoward incidents.”
