More than 120 people have been killed in landslides and floods triggered by heavy rains in the western Indian state of Maharashtra.
According to experts, it is the heaviest in four decades caused by climate change.
Downpours lasting several days have severely affected the lives of hundreds of thousands, sweeping away houses and leaving residents stranded, while major rivers are in danger of bursting their banks.
“Around 90,000 people were rescued from flood affected areas,” the Maharashtra government said in a statement.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed that he was in anguish over the loss of lives.
The Indian navy and disaster authorities have been sent to help rescue operations in coastal areas.
