GAUHATI, India (AP) — Intense flooding in India’s remote northeast has entered a third week, leaving about 60 people dead and nearly 2 million others seeking shelter on higher ground.
The disaster management authority in Gauhati, the capital of Assam state, says some 45 deaths have been reported across the state since mid-June. Most of the deaths have been due to drownings, electrocutions and mudslides.
In the nearby state of Arunachal Pradesh, at least 14 people died Tuesday after a mudslide swept through a village.
Deadly floods occur regularly during the monsoon season, which runs from June through September.
